Sad: Chris Daughtry’s wife, Deanna, tried to delete any assumptions about the cause of death of her 25-year-old daughter, because she branded reports of it being investigated as a false ‘murder’.
Hannah was found dead at her home in Pentress County, Tennessee on Nov. 12, and the cause of death is still under investigation, despite early reports that detectives told family members it was murder.
‘The news floating around that we said that our daughters death was investigated as a murder is false! We were not told that and we were never told that! ‘, Diana began.
“On the day that Hannah was found, I shared some concerns I had with some people I could and said we would not know anything for sure until after they completed the investigation. One took things and ran with him. Or one talked to others who then made assumptions and ran with him to the press.
‘None of us can go to conclusions. To have questions and concerns is one thing but harassing someone and calling them a murderer before all the facts are in is wrong on every level regardless of their history, “she continued to say but did not specify directly to whom she referred to.

‘I have lost my child and I must now also deal with rumors and assumptions about her. The people who love her are sad and we grieve that they do not speak to the press, they do not spread any rumors and they make sure this is not about themselves. So everyone please just stop!
Let the investigating officers do their jobs and please remember that snippets of someone’s life do not define who they really are as a person. Hannah has been on earth with us for 25 years, there is so much more to her story than what you read.
‘I loved my daughter so much and I’ve experienced the deepest emotional pain I’ve ever felt! Please stop making it worse for those of us who love you by spreading rumors and saying disgusting things about our family. We are real people! Just because my husband has a public job does not mean that this is good to do, “she pleaded.
To the beautiful humans who send us their prayers, love and kindness during this time, we thank you. We are not able to reach out to you all individually because I’m sure you understand but please know we are grateful for people like you, “Diana said in conclusion.
