    Chris Daughtry’s 25-year-old daughter, Hannah, was found dead at her home in Nashville on Friday.

    Update – November 14th: According to TMZ, detectives told the Daughtry family that Hannah’s death was a homicide. Hannah’s boyfriend, Bobby Jolly, was arrested on Friday, but police are thus far declining to say whether it was in connection to her death.

    The family is “awaiting the autopsy results to determine how Hannah sustained the injuries that caused her death,” Hannah’s mother, Deanna, wrote in a statement posted to Instagram. “Our hearts are broken.”


    “I am still processing the last 24 hours. I am absolutely devastated and heartbroken,” Chris Daughtry said in his own statement. “I just recently lost my mother to cancer but I was blessed with the chance to say goodbye and I was processing it privately.”

    “We never got to say goodbye to our precious Hannah and it’s another huge hit to our family,” he added. “I am now taking time be present with my family as we attempt to heal from this devastating loss. Hannah, I love you. I miss you. I wish I could hold you. This hurts so deeply.”

    In light of the tragedy, “all currently scheduled shows for the coming week for Daughtry have been cancelled or postponed,” the singer said. “The Daughtry family thanks you for your understanding and respectfully asks for privacy during this very difficult time.”


    Hannah and her brother Griffin, 23, are Deanna’s children from a previous relationship. Chris and Deanna, who met in 2000, also share twins Adalynn Rose and Noah James.

    Daughtry had just kicked off their “Dearly Beloved Tour” with Sevendust and Tremonti earlier this month.
