"Dog"'s Daughter Killed in Stolen Car
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - May 23, 2006 -- Duane "Dog" Chapman's 23-year-old daughter died when the stolen SUV she was in rolled and crashed into some trees, authorities said.
The cable television reality show star's daughter, Barbara Katy Chapman, was killed along with the car's driver, Scott Standefer II, in the accident Friday night, Alaska State Troopers said.
Troopers suspect drugs or alcohol may have played a role in the crash, spokesman Greg Wilkinson said Monday. Toxicology tests were scheduled.
The accident occurred a day before her father, star of A&E's reality show "Dog the Bounty Hunter," married his longtime partner, Beth Smith, in Hawaii.
He gathered with his 10 surviving children - two of whom he had with Smith - and discussed whether to proceed with the wedding. They unanimously decided to celebrate both the wedding and Barbara's life.
Barbara Chapman, who had not been expected to attend the wedding, is survived by her mother and her 4-year-old son, Travis Drake-Lee Chapman.
