American Idol alum Chris Daughtry has revealed the cause of death of his stepdaughter Hannah Price, who was found dead in her Tennessee home two months ago.
The rocker and his family released a statement today via People magazine, sadly confirming that Hannah died by suicide while under the influence of narcotics. She was 25.
"Our beloved Daughter Hannah Price passed away on November 12th, 2021," the statement read. "Much speculation has been made since that date, and after a full investigation by law enforcement we are now able to speak in further detail."

The statement said Hannah was in and out of therapy and treatment centres from a young age as she struggled with mental illness.
"As Hannah got older, she struggled to find her footing and began using drugs and often found herself in abusive relationships," the statement continued. "Just months after losing her biological father to suicide, Hannah was the victim of a crime and was shot in the face. We did everything we could to support her and get her the help she needed to recover from these tragedies and get her life back on track."

The family revealed that they recently made plans with Hannah for her to seek further treatment and move closer to the family just before her death, but it was too late.
"Hannah was a generous and loving person who wanted more for herself and others. She will forever be in the hearts and minds of those of us who love her," the family concluded.
At the time of Hannah's death, her mother Deanna Daughtry — who has been married to the rocker since 2000 — was forced to hit back at claims Hannah's death was a homicide.

"The news floating around that we said our daughter's death is being investigated as a homicide is false!" she wrote on Instagram at the time.
"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."https://www.instagram.com/p/CWOiIyHv7Xb/
"None of us can go jumping to conclusions," she added. "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!"
