Musician Chris Daughtry and his family have shared the cause of the death of his stepdaughter Hannah Price, 25, who was found dead in her home on Nov 12, 2021.

The Daughtry family waited for the police investigation around Price’s death to conclude before sharing the results via a statement. She was confirmed to have died by suicide and apparently had narcotics in her system.

They began by clarifying that Price had struggled with mental health issues for a long time and she “was in and out of therapy and treatment centers” through her adolescence.

“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 those 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.”

On the day of her death, Price apparently called her family to tell them she was “in fear for her life” after facing abuse from her boyfriend. Police arrived at Price’s residence for a wellness check, and they reported she would be fine and left just before 1 p.m. Price was then found dead by hanging by her boyfriend.

While rumors initially circulated that police suspected her death to be a homicide, Price’s mother Deanna Daughtry denied those rumors in an Instagram post. “The people who loved her are in pain and we are mourning. They are not talking to the press, they are not spreading rumors,” Daughtry wrote in part.

According to Chris Daughtry, Price’s passing comes right on the heels of another personal tragedy for the American Idol singer.

Back in November, Daughtry mentioned this in his statement following Price’s death, “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. We never got to say goodbye to our precious Hannah and it’s another huge hit to our family.”
