Fentress Co. authorities looking into death of entertainer Chris Daughtry's stepdaughter

Hannah M. Price died Friday in Tennessee.

FENTRESS COUNTY, Tenn. — Fentress County authorities said they're looking into the circumstances of the death of Hannah Marie Price, the 25-year-old stepdaughter of singer Chris Daughtry.

Hannah Marie Price was found dead Friday.

Along with the Fentress County Sheriff's Office, the Regional Forensic Center in Knoxville is reviewing Price's death. They began work Friday.

"This is a death investigation and any attempt to classify it as a homicide investigation at this time is premature and irresponsible," a release Monday from District Attorney General Jared Effler states.

"Further, no one has been arrested pertaining to the death of Ms. Price."

Investigators will report their findings to Effler, who will then decide if any charges are warranted.

Over the weekend, Daughtry announced he was postponing some upcoming concert tour dates, NBC reported.

"Due to the unexpected death of Chris and Deanna Daughtry's daughter, Hannah, all currently scheduled shows for the coming week for Daughtry have been postponed," the couple said in a statement. "The Daughtry family thanks you for your understanding and respectfully asks for privacy during this very difficult time."

Price and her brother Griffin Daughtry, 23, are Deanna's children from a previous marriage.

Chris, a former "American Idol" contestant, and Deanna also share twins Adalynn Rose and Noah James, 10.

Deanna posted on Instagram refuting the idea that her daughters death was being treated as homicide investigation. 

"The news floating around that we said our daughters death is being investigated as a homicide is false! 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."

In a previous post, Deanna shared a heartfelt tribute to her eldest daughter on Instagram, saying she "would like to thank you all for the outpouring of love as we grieve the loss of my daughter Hannah," NBC reported.
