The family of Chris Daughtry has confirmed that his 25-year old stepdaughter, Hannah Price, died by suicide while under the influence of narcotics.
Hannah was found dead in her Nashville home on November 12 by police.
In a statement shared with People, the Daughtry family said: “Our beloved Daughter Hannah Price passed away on November 12th, 2021. Much speculation has been made since that date, and after a full investigation by law enforcement we are now able to speak in further detail.
The family said that Price had struggled with mental illness “from a young age,” and “was in and out of therapy and treatment centers” over the years.
“As Hannah got older, she struggled to find her footing and began using drugs and often found herself in abusive relationships,” the statement read. “Just months after losing her biological father to suicide, Hannah was the victim of a crime and was shot in the face. We did everything we could to support her and get her the help she needed to recover from these tragedies and get her life back on track. We had just recently made plans with Hannah for her to seek further treatment and move closer to the family.
“Hannah was a generous and loving person who wanted more for herself and others. She will forever be in the hearts and minds of those of us who love her,” the family said. “We ask for your continued privacy at this time while we grieve. If you or a loved one is experiencing mental health, abuse, or addiction problems, please seek help immediately.

Hannah and her 23 year old brother, Griffin, are Deanna Daughtry’s children from a previous marriage.
DAUGHTRY were on tour when the tragic incident happened, with Chris saying in a statement that he was “absolutely devastated and heartbroken” by the loss of his stepdaughter.
“I just recently in the last week lost my mother to cancer but I was blessed with the chance to say goodbye and I was processing it privately,” he wrote. “We never got to say goodbye to our precious Hannah and it’s another huge hit to our family.”
