The death of Chris Daughtry’s stepdaughter is being investigated as a homicide, according to reports.
When Hannah Price, 25, was found dead at her Nashville home last week by police, the rock band Daughtry decided to cancel their upcoming tour dates.
According to TMZ, police have informed Price’s family that their death was a homicide under investigation by the Fentress County Police Department.
When Hannah Price’s body was found in Fentress County on the same day as her boyfriend Bobby Jolly’s arrest, detectives have not stated whether he is a suspect or person of interest in the case.
Deanna Price, the mother-in-law of Daughtry’s late wife, said her daughter had been injured and died as a result of those injuries.
‘My first born.’ she wrote in an Instagram tribute. Hannah, you’re the most wonderful person in the world to me. Please accept our heartfelt gratitude from our family as we mourn the loss of our daughter Hannah.
‘We are awaiting the results of the autopsy to determine how Hannah sustained the injuries that led to her death,’ the coroner said. ‘Our hearts are torn apart.’
Deanna has two sets of twins: Adalynn and Noah, who are 10 years old, are the product of her relationship with Daughtry, and Deanna also has a 23-year-old brother named Griffin.
As a child, Deanna married the rocker when he was just four years old.
Randall Scott Price, Price’s biological father, committed suicide in March 2018.
All of Daughtry’s upcoming shows have been cancelled following the unexpected death of Chris and Deanna Daughtry’s daughter, Hannah, who was just two years old at the time.
‘The Daughtry family appreciates your consideration and respectfully requests privacy at this time of great need. Thank you.’
We will provide more information about this at a later time. This tragic death is still under investigation.’
Daughtry, 41, has since issued a personal statement in which he describes himself as ‘devastated.’..
‘I am still processing the last 24 hours,’ writes the It’s Not Over singer on Instagram. I’m inconsolable and heartbroken to the core.
‘My mother died of cancer just last week, but I was given the opportunity to say my goodbyes and I was processing it privately,’ she said. Hannah was a beloved member of our family, but we were never able to say our final goodbyes to her.
