Detectives say the death of Chris Daughtry’s 25-year-old daughter is being treated as a homicide. 

Tennessee District Attorney General Jared Effler is conducting an investigation into Hannah Daughtry’s death which happened yesterday.

Her boyfriend, Bobby Jolly, was arrested at Fentress County Jail on Friday, although police have not stated if he is a person of interest or suspect in Hannah’s death. 

Earlier, the singer and guitarist posted an emotional statement on his Instagram in which he revealed how he was struggling to comprehend what had happened.

‘I am still processing the last 24 hours. I am absolutely devastated and heartbroken. I just recently lost my mother to cancer but I was blessed with the chance to say goodbye and I was processing it privately,’ Chris Daughtry began.

‘We never got to say goodbye to our precious Hannah and it’s another huge hit to our family. Thank you all for your kind words and condolences. They are truly felt and appreciated. 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,’ he added.

His wife, Deanna, also posted her own heartfelt tribute and said the family is now waiting for autopsy results to determine the injuries that led to her death. 

‘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. We are awaiting the autopsy results to determine how Hannah sustained the injuries that caused her death. Our hearts are broken,’ wrote Deanna Daughtry on Saturday.  

Deanna has been the wife of the former American Idol contestant for over two decades. The couple shares 10-year-old twins Adalynn and Noah and 23-year-old Griffin and Hannah from Deanna’s previous relationship.
