Prosecutors in the investigation involving the death of Chris Daughtry’s daughter, Hannah, say they are not classifying it as a homicide investigation at this time.
The 8th District Tennessee D.A. released a statement, “This is a death investigation and any attempt to classify it as a homicide investigation at this time is premature and irresponsible.”
This, after TMZ reported that sources directly connected to the Daughtry family said detectives told the family Hannah’s death was a homicide.
25-year-old Hannah was found dead Friday at her home.
The same day as her body was found, Hannah’s boyfriend, Bobby Jolly, was arrested on an unrelated matter and is currently in custody. He has not been labeled either a suspect or a person of interest in Hannah’s death.
Hannah and her brother Griffin, 23, are Chris’s wife Deanna’s children from a previous relationship. Chris and Deanna who met in 2000, also share twins Adalynn Rose and Noah James, 10.
Meanwhile, Chris broke his silence on Instagram. “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,”
He continued, “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.”
In an Instagram post, Deanna wrote, “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.”
