In 2000, Chris Daughtry married his girlfriend, Deanna, according to AllMusic, and adopted his wife’s children, daughter Hannah Price and son Griffin. A decade into their marriage, the couple welcomed twins, a boy and a girl, in November 2010, according to CBS News. “Our family is overwhelmed with joy by these two precious gifts from God,” Daughtry said in a statement at the time.
In 2021, however, Daughtry’s apparent familial bliss took a tragic turn as he went on tour for the album “Dearly Beloved.” In early November, 25-year-old Hannah was found dead from injuries, according to a statement from her mother on Instagram. In response to the news, Daughtry suspended his tour dates, according to Deadline, saying he was “taking time [to] be present with [his] family.”
Hannah’s final years were hard, according to reporting by The New York Post. Her biological father committed suicide in March 2018. Later that year, Hannah was shot in the face, in what she said was a shooting by gang members; despite her successful father, she raised money for her recovery over GoFundMe. Earlier in 2021, Hannah was arrested for a hit-and-run incident along with a male driver who allegedly fired a gun, according to the Post.
Hannah’s death is still under investigation at the time of this writing.
