troubled past

Hannah’s life seems to have taken a dark turn since the suicide of her biological father, Randall Scott Prices, in March 2018.

Less than a year after Randall’s death, Hannah was allegedly shot in the face when she was caught in a clash with gang members in Humboldt, Tennessee, the New York Post reported.

According to one of Hannah’s Facebook posts, the shooting happened when she was taken to “a place where she did not feel safe” by a “friend she barely knew.”

Hannah claimed she was shot as she tried to save her friend’s life after teens who wanted to join a gang tried to kill him.

“I noticed that they did not have the gun strapped, so when I noticed that they were trying to shoot at him, I tried to drive the kid over with my car and I ended up being shot in the face,” Hanna wrote. on Facebook.

“I was blind for a little over two weeks and it happened right after my dad had committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. It was a lot.”

Hannah claimed on Facebook that she was the “seriously injured” woman mentioned in a news report of the incident, which says a 15-year-old was charged with attempted murder in connection with the 2018 shooting.

According to her social media, Hannah had to undergo surgery and received an eye prosthesis after being shot.

She also claimed that while undergoing surgery, someone broke into her apartment and stole “everything”.

Hannah set up a GoFundMe in October 2018 after the incident and wrote: “Hi, I’m Hannah Price and I’re raising money for my medical bills.

“I was taken into the air after being shot in Humboldt TN on October 12, 2018 and had an emergency operation. I am also raising money to pay for my next operation. I have insurance so it covers most things, but I have a deductible of about $ 120.

“I collected my car every time I was shot to save my friend, so I also have to save money to get a new vehicle so I can start working again.”

Only months before her death, Hannah had another encounter with the law.

Hannah’s activity on social media in the weeks leading up to her death also paints a bleak picture.

In one of her last posts on Instagram, she wrote: “Look around and love someone, the world has been hateful long enough” and added the hashtag iloveyouasyou are.


Hannah reportedly had two young children.

She and her younger brother, Griffin, 23, are Deanna Daughtry’s children from a previous relationship.

Chris and Deanna also have twins Adalynn Rose and Noah James, 10.

The singer got his start on the famous show American Idol in 2006, when the original judges heard the singers, and has since made a name for himself on the country stage.

Chris has canceled all of his upcoming shows, which were part of his Dearly Beloved tour, and has flown back to Nashville, Tennessee, to be with his grieving family.

“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,” reads a statement from both the band and Dana’s accounts.

“The Daughtry family thanks you for your understanding and respectfully prays for privacy in this very difficult time. Further details will be made available at a later date. The investigation into this tragic death is still ongoing. ”
