Singer-songwriter Chris Daughtry revealed the tragic news over the weekend after his 25-year-old daughter, Hannah, was found dead inside her home in Nashviille, TN. As of now, there have been no details released about Hannah’s death, but officials are reportedly investigating the death as a homicide.
Family Mentions ‘Injuries’
The possibility of foul play was also echoed in a social media post by Hannah’s mother and Chris Daughtry’s wife, Deanna.
“My first born. I love you endlessly Hannah. Our family would like to thank you all for the outpouring of love as we grieve the loss of our daughter Hannah,” Deanna wrote on Saturday in a post containing multiple photos of Hannah.
