Deanna Daughtry Responds to False Allegations That Their Daughter’s Passing Was a Homicide: ‘None of Us Can Go Jumping to Conclusions’

Chris Daughtry’s wife, Deanna Daughtry, has shared a second public statement regarding the death of her daughter, Hannah Price. As Mamas Uncut previously reported, Hannah Price was found deceased in her Nashville home on November 12.

Her death is currently under investigation. However, following reports that suggested Hannah’s death was a homicide are now being debunked by both the District Attorney and Deanna Daughtry. At the time, Mamas Uncut also published such speculations, we have since retracted that report.

While Deanna can’t pinpoint exactly how the rumor that Hannah’s death was a homicide got started, she is now very clear that is false. “The news floating around that we said our daughter’s death is being investigated as a homicide is false,” Deanna began her statement.

“We were not told that and never said that to anyone! The day Hannah was found I shared some concerns I had with some [people] I know and said we won’t know anything for sure till after they complete the investigation. Someone took that and went running with it or they talked to some else who then made assumptions and went running to the press with it. None of us can go jumping to conclusions.”

As Deanna continued, she seemed to address the additional rumor that Hannah’s reported boyfriend was arrested on the day she was discovered dead. As the DA revealed in his initial statement, no one has been arrested in connection to Price’s unexpected passing.

“Having questions and concerns is one thing but harassing someone and calling them a murderer before all the facts are in is wrong on every level regardless of their history,” Deanna wrote on Instagram. “If you have information that you feel the police should know about this then tell them and let them do their job.”

As the grieving mother continued, Deanna wrote that having to deal with rumors about her daughter’s passing hasn’t made the process any easier. “I lost my child and I’m having to now also deal with rumors and assumptions about her. The people who loved her are in pain and we are mourning, they are not talking to the press, they are not spreading rumors and they sure as hell are not making this about themselves.” 

“So everyone please just stop,” Deanna Daughtry pleaded. 

As a result, she asked everyone to “let the investigating officers do their jobs and please remember snippets of someone’s life does not define who they really are as a person.” 

“Hannah was on this earth with us for 25 years there is so much more to her story than what you are reading. I loved my daughter so much and I am experiencing the deepest emotional pain I have ever felt! Please stop making it worse for those of us who love her by spreading rumors and saying disgusting things about our family. We are real people! Just because my husband has a public job does not mean this is OK to do.” 

Deanna concluded her statement by thanking those they know personally and their fans who have sent kind words making this unimaginable process somewhat easier. “To the beautiful humans who are sending us their prayers, love, and kindness during this time, we thank you. We are not able to reach out to you all individually as I’m sure you understand but please know we are thankful for people like you.”
