Beth died after after suffering throat cancer, but Chapman and Beth's daughter Bonnie later revealed lung cancer is what ultimately led to her passing.
Chapman has been open about Beth's final days and his grieving process in interviews since her death. In a July interview with Entertainment Tonight, Chapman opened up about Beth's final moments at home before she was hospitalized for the final time.
"The last few moments she said, 'Come in here right now, in the bathroom,'" Chapman said. "I went in and she said, 'Look at me.' And I said, 'Yeah, you're freaking beautiful baby.' [And she said,] 'Look at me, Duane Chapman.' And I did, I always saw Beth and she said, 'Please, let me go.'
"And I didn't even make a decision, I almost said, 'I can't.' Before I could say, 'Alright,' she couldn't breathe, and I called the ambulance."
