Chris Daughtry, wife’s release statement on daughter’s cause of death – The Hollywood Reporter

Chris Daughtry shares details about the death of his stepdaughter, Hannah Price.

In a joint statement released Thursday with wife Deanna Daughtry, the couple revealed that Price, 25, died as a result of suicide while under the influence of drugs. The couple released the statement through a representative as a way to clear up the speculation that has swirled around since Price's death at her home in Fentress County, Tennessee on November 12. They added that they are now speaking after a "complete investigation conducted by law enforcement" into her death.

The statement paints a tragic picture of Price's life. According to her parents, she was battling mental illness and in the wake of losing her father to suicide, fell victim to a crime and was shot in the face.

“From a young age, Hannah struggled with mental illness and was in and out of therapy and treatment centers. "As Hannah got older, she struggled to find a foothold and started using drugs and was often in violent relationships," the statement read. "Only months after losing her biological father to suicide, Hannah became a victim of a crime and was shot in the face. We did everything we could to support her and give her the help she needed to recover. "These tragedies and getting her life back on track. We had recently made plans with Hannah that she should seek further treatment and move closer to her family."

They stated that on the morning of November 12, Price contacted them to express that she was in fear for her life after allegedly being abused by her boyfriend. They say they contacted the Fentress County Police Department and asked officers to perform a welfare check, after which she was deemed okay. "They left without incident," the statement continued. "Later that afternoon, Hannah was found hanged by her boyfriend and he called 911. She was pronounced dead at the scene by medical staff."

The Daughtrys notes that the investigation showed no evidence of fraudulent play. With the investigation closed, they are asking for privacy while mourning. "Hannah was a generous and loving person who wanted more for herself and others," Daughtrys says. "She will forever be in the hearts and minds of those of us who love her."

The Hollywood Reporter reached out to the Fentress County Police Department, and a representative was unavailable for comment at the time of the press release.
