• 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' calls out Essex County DA on Twitter

    Updated:

    Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, took to Twitter Tuesday morning to call out the Essex County District Attorney claiming charges should have been filed after the death of a local woman in 2012.

    Brian Evans, who is originally from Haverhill, is running for Congress in Hawaii. 

    He claims his mother, Helen Bousquet, died when she was placed into an un-monitored recovery room at Holy Family Hospital in Methuen, according to a release announcing his candidacy.

    Evans claims hospital staff put her into the un-monitored room, despite knowing she suffered from Sleep Apnea.

    Since his mother’s death, he has reached out to all 50 governors seeking Sleep Apnea Proclamations to raise awareness about the condition.

    “You must get a sleep test if your loved one continuously snores,” he said in the release. “They could be dying. Don’t nudge them; bring them to a doctor before it’s too late.”

    No charges were filed after Bousquet’s death, and Chapman is among those who believes there should have been.

    “I would like to have seen (Essex County District Attorney Jon Blodgett) take more of an interest in what happened to Helen Bousquet,” he said on Twitter. "There should have been criminal charges filed in that case.”

    Blodgett has not yet responded to Chapman's tweets Tuesday morning.

    Chapman also mentioned several Boston-area TV stations, CNN and Fox News, as well as Gov. Charlie Baker and Attorney General Maura Healy in his tweets.

    Evans created a webpage to raise awareness about what happened to his mother, and you can check it out by clicking here.
