Chris Daughtry’s wife has urged people to stop spreading rumors that her daughter’s death is being investigated as a homicide, saying the speculation is “making it worse for those of us who love her.”
Deanna Daughtry denied that homicide is being eyed by authorities investigating the death of her daughter Hannah Price, 25, who was found dead Nov. 12 in her Nashville home.
“I lost my child and I’m having to now also deal with rumors and assumptions about her,” Daughtry wrote Friday on Instagram. “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 h— are not making this about themselves.”
Daughtry said the homicide rumors had been sparked by the family sharing concerns with people in their circle.
“Someone took that and went running with it or they talked to someone else who then made assumptions and went running to the press with it,” she said.
She continued, “So everyone please just stop! I loved my daughter so much & 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 & saying disgusting things about our family. We are real people!”
Circumstances surrounding the death are unclear.
Price’s boyfriend, Bobby Jolly, was arrested the same day that her body was found.
Police have said Jolly is not a suspect in connection with her death, however.
“No one has been arrested pertaining to the death of Ms. Price,” the office of District Attorney General Jared Effler said.
Price’s mother on Friday urged people not to jump to conclusions about who was responsible for her death.
“Having questions & 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,” she said.
Hannah and her brother Griffin, 23, are Deanna’s children from a previous relationship.
Chris and Deanna, who met in 2000, have 10-year-old twins together, Adalynn Rose and Noah James.
