News broke yesterday that Hannah Daughtry, the 25-year-old stepdaughter of famous American Idol contestant and Grammy-nominated musician Chris Daughtry and his wife Deanna’s daughter, had died.
On Nov. 12, Hannah Daughtry was found dead at her home, according to USA Today. No more information has been given at this time.
Christopher Adam Daughtry is an American singer, songwriter, and actor. He is the leading vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Daughtry, which he created after ranking fourth on the fifth season of American Idol.
One of the most famous of the show’s former players, Daughtry, started his namesake brand soon after. Their 2007 hit singles “Home” and “It’s Not Over” placed on the Billboard Hot 100 at numbers five and four, respectively.
There are many new reports concerning the death of Chris Daughtry’s daughter.
TMZ reports investigators told Chris Daughtry and his wife that their daughter Hannah’s death was a homicide.
The 41-year-old singer-songwriter says in an Instagram post: “I am still processing the last 24 hours. I am absolutely devastated and heartbroken.”
Chris Daughtry’s wife and Hannah’s mother, Deanna Daughtry, also wrote out on Instagram saying: “My first born. I love you endlessly Hannah.”
She went on to say the family is expecting the autopsy conclusions to discover how Hannah bore the injuries that caused her death.
According to the reports, Chris and Deanna have four kids to which Hannah and Griffin belonged from Deanna’s previous relationship; their ages are 25 and 23, respectively whereas, twins Adalynn Rose and Noah James are 10.
Deanna already gave tribute to Hannah Worth in a lengthy post over the weekend, but as time has progressed, more information reported to her death has come to the spotlight, including that her cause of death may have been a homicide. In addition, Daughtry himself shared a tragic and memorable post about what the family has been facing.
Chris and Deanna Daughtry have not publicly expressed Hannah’s cause of death. Still, reports over the weekend showed the couple was allegedly told Hannah was a sufferer of a homicide. According to the report of TMZ, Hannah’s partner Bobby Jolly was detained on the same day her body was recovered, though police and the family are not validating news about the subject right now.
What has been authenticated to the outlet was that a death investigation is being undergone in Fentress County, Tennessee. We will likely know more in the coming days, but the Daughtry family is still going through heartache and anxiety for now, and both parents have been open about their emotions online.
The Daughtry family has had more than one heartbreak to deal with lately, as Chris Daughtry got candid about recently losing his mother to cancer in a post. In that situation, he could say the things he wanted to say before she passed away. With Hannah, he and Deanna never had that occasion. In a post, the “Waiting for Superman” singer shared something very emotional.

Hannah And Her Boyfriend Previously Arrested
According to ABC6, Hannah and her boyfriend Bobby Jolly were detained in April in a hit-and-run incident in Tennessee.
According to police statements, Bobby supposedly shot at another car in an apparent road rage incident, and they were both charged with aggravated assault.
Sources nearby to Hannah’s family published to TMZ that her boyfriend was named Bobby Jolly.
Bobby was reportedly arrested the same day Hannah’s body was discovered.
However, it has not yet been verified whether Bobby was arrested due to Hannah’s death or even a suspect in the case.
Hannah’s Painful Past Lasted
Chris Daughtry’s late daughter was shot in the face eight months after the death of her birth father, Randall Scott Price, who took his own life after shooting himself in the head in March 2018.
According to Hannah and news, the damage happened in her undergoing surgery and getting fitted for a prosthetic eye.
Hannah claimed on her Facebook page that the incident involved gang members, including one teenager who was attempting to join the Crips.
“I noticed they didn’t have the gun cocked so by the time I noticed they were trying to shoot at him I was trying to run the kid over with my car and I ended up getting shot in the face,” wrote Hannah online.
“I was blind for a little over two weeks and this happened directly after my dad had committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. It was a lot.”
