Dog the Bounty Hunte r made a heartbreaking tribute to his late daughter on social media on the anniversary of his passing.
His beloved daughter, Barbara Katie, died when she was just 23 after being involved in a horrible car accident.
Taking Instagram, Dog, 67, whose real name is Duane Lee Chapman, remembered Barbara on the 15th anniversary of his death.
Next to a precious shot of her holding her son Travis who was four years old at the time of his death, Dog wrote: “Fifteen years ago today. My Barbara Katie went to be with Jesus.”
Reports say the young mother was with a friend while driving, who unfortunately died even after the terrible accident.
The vehicle they were traveling on at the time rolled off the road and hit the trees before landing upside down.
According to reports, the 23-year-old mother also had to deal with drug and alcohol abuse, believed to have been the main reason for the accident.
“There is no idea why they left the roadway. There are absolutely no signs of heeling on the road. They just left the road, hit an embankment and launched,” said soldier Jeremy Stone at the time.
The day after his death Dog and Beth Chapman went on with their wedding they had planned for months.
They decided to communicate the tragic news to their friends and family about Barbara’s death during the reception.
The dog faced multiple pains when his beloved Beth passed away last year after a painful battle against cancer.
But things are looking for him again after meeting the second love of his life, Francie Frane to whom he recently asked the question after only a month of dating.
He asked the candlelight application at their home in Colorado.
Francie shared the happy news on her Instagram page, showing her ring and writing: “So excited about this new chapter!”
The lovebirds were introduced when Bob, Francie’s husband, was invited to do some work in Dog’s Colorado home.
Unfortunately, Bob later died a few months before Dog’s wife Beth lost his battle against cancer in June 2019.
Dog and Francie are said to have tied their shared pain before their friendship turned to romance.
They moved together earlier this year and only went public with their love story in March.
