Bounty Hunter’s Daughter Turns Life Around
Lyssa Chapman, the ninth child of Duane ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter’ Chapman, as well as a survivor of poverty, abuse, and addiction has written a book called, “Walking on Eggshells, Discovering Strength and Courage Amid Chaos.” Chapman was once a cast member of A&E hit show “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” in which she and her famous dad and stepmother Beth and others tracked down wanted fugitives. She is no longer on the show, but she found her way in the world, as well as her pathway to God, but those things came at a price paid at a young age.
Her parents divorced when Lyssa was two. By the time she was seven, she was living in Hawaii with her father in a household that became toxic with drugs and alcohol. At 12, she had moved to Anderson, Alaska to live with her mother, also an alcoholic. Her journey through mental and physical abuse and drug addiction included being removed from school, confined to her house and a flight from protective services, as well as giving birth just after her fifteenth birthday by a man who eventually went to jail for statutory rape. Chapman is the mother of two girls. She believes when God came into her life, it was an intervention of the divine order. By 17, Chapman’s life had skid to bottom and she was living in her car with her three-year-old daughter.
