NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — As of Monday, the questions surrounding how musician Chris Daughtry's daughter died in Tennessee is under investigation.

The Fentress County Sheriffs Office and the Regional Forensic Center began an investigation Nov. 12 into the death of Hannah Marie Price, 25.

"This is a death investigation and any attempt to classify it as a homicide investigation at this time is premature and irresponsible," said Jared Effler, District Attorney General of the Eight Judicial District of Tennessee. "Further, no one has been arrested pertaining to the death of Ms. Price. Once the investigation into the death of Hannah Marie Price is complete, authorities will forward their findings to the Eighth Judicial District Attorney General's Office for review."

Daughtry announced on social media the unexpected death of his daughter this weekend.

The singer wrote on Facebook he had just lost his mother when he got word that his daughter, Hannah, died during the weekend. The circumstances of her death haven't been announced.

"I am devastated and heartbroken," he wrote.

The musician canceled his shows during the weekend and will undergo rescheduling.
