The death of rocker Chris Daughtry’s stepdaughter, Hannah Price, continues to spur more questions and few answers.

The 25-year-old Price, whose mother is married to Daughtry, was found dead Friday at home in Nashville in what his band called an “unexpected death.”

No cause of death has been publicly revealed and a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department did not answer a call from the Daily News.

The family has been told that Price’s death is being investigated as a homicide, according to TMZ.

On Saturday, Price’s mother, Deanna Daughtry, hinted at a traumatic death, saying she was waiting on an autopsy “to determine how Hannah sustained the injuries that caused her death.”

“I love you endlessly Hannah,” she wrote on Instagram.

Price’s boyfriend, Bobby Jolly, was arrested Friday, according to TMZ, but it’s unclear if that was related to Price’s death.

The district attorney general did not immediately return The News’ request for comment.

Daughtry, the 41-year-old “American Idol” alum, said Friday that he was “absolutely devastated and heartbroken” by Price’s death.

“I just recently lost my mother to cancer but I was blessed with the chance to say goodbye and I was processing it privately. We never got to say goodbye to our precious Hannah and it’s another huge hit to our family,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Hannah, I love you. I miss you. I wish I could hold you. This hurts so deeply.”

He has since postponed his scheduled tour.

Price, whose biological father died by suicide in March 2018, was shot in the face about six months later when she claims she was trying to save a 15-year-old boy from Crip gang members in Humboldt, Tennessee.

Price said she was blind for two weeks and had her apartment burglarized while she was undergoing surgery.

“It’s been crazy but honestly I’ve had a very positive perspective about it all,” she wrote on Facebook at the time. “I do need help which makes me very vulnerable to have to ask.”

In April, she and Jolly were arrested in a road rage incident during which another driver reported being shot at on Interstate 40.

A .22-caliber rifle was found in their car, but both denied it had been fired, according to WBIR.
