DOG THE Bounty Hunter's daughter Lyssa Chapman visited sister Barbara Katie’s grave a week after the 14th anniversary of her tragic death.
Barbara Katie tragically passed away aged 23 from injuries sustained in a car accident near Fairbanks, Alaska on May 19, 2006, a day before Dog wed Beth Chapman.
Over the weekend, businesswoman Lyssa, who lives in Hawaii, flew to Colorado for a family fishing trip and during her stint at home decided to visit her late sister's grave.
Taking to her Instagram Stories yesterday, the reality star honored her sister's memory as she shared a short clip of her sister's resting place in a cemetery in Jefferson County.
Lyssa's 67-year-old father Dog also paid tribute to Barbara-Katie last week in light of her 14th anniversary.
"15 years ago today My Barbara Katie went to be w/ JESUS," wrote Dog last week, sharing a picture of his daughter with her young son Travis, who was four when she died.
Alaska state troopers said at the time that the young mom was with a friend, driver Scott Standefer II, who was also killed, when their SUV rolled off the road and hit trees before landing upside down.
The vehicle was stolen.
Trooper Jeremy Stone told press at the time that the pair had tried using a stolen credit card to rent a room at Chena Hot Springs Resort.
"There is no clue as to why they left the roadway," Stone said. "There are absolutely no skid marks on the road. They just went off the road, hit an embankment and launched."
Speaking to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner at the time, her mom, Lyssa Rae Britton, said: "(Barbara) had gotten herself into a terrible mess. She was trying as hard as she could to put her life back together".
The day after her death Dog and Beth went ahead with the wedding, and told friends and family of her passing during the reception.
Beth passed away in June 2019 after a long battle with cancer.
Dog is now engaged to Francie Frane, and in an exclusive interview with The Sun, Barbara Katie's sister Lyssa said her dad and his new love are "really cute" together and the 51-year-old fits in with the family perfectly.
She told The Sun her dad's relationship may give inspiration to other widows and widowers that they can find love again.
But she admits it may be difficult for fans to see her famous father embark on a new relationship since Beth died from cancer last June.
Lyssa said: "I think that it's really hard for people to see dad move on."
