The mess was allegedly found by one of Chapman’s team members, who had stopped by the store to “handle some business.” The team member reported that thousands of dollars worth of “Dog and Beth” products were also stolen.
The Blast described the personal items that were stolen as “priceless family mementos.” The report alleges that the personal items in the store were being used in the memorial made in Beth’s memory following her passing.

As Dearly previously reported, Beth passed away on June 26 after a two-year-long battle with cancer.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Chapman detailed one of the last conversations he had with Beth before she was put into a medically induced coma:
“The last few moments she said, ‘Come in here right now, in the bathroom.’ 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… But everyday she talked as if she was not there. ‘Here’s what to do with this, here’s what to do with that. Don’t keep running your mouth. When they ask you a specific question, just answer that.’”
He added, “There is not another Beth. There’ll never be another Beth. There ain’t a girl built like another Beth.”
