CHRIS Daughtry's step-daughter, Hannah Price, 25, had meth and fentanyl in her system when she hanged herself, according to the tragic autopsy report.
Hannah, who was just 25-years-old, was found dead in November of last year.
The autopsy report, which has been obtained by The Sun, revealed the American Idol alum's daughter died by suicide by hanging.
Beyond her immediate cause of death, the autopsy's "toxicologic evaluation was remarkable for methamphetamine and fentanyl intoxication."
In a tragic revelation, the report said: "The decedent and her boyfriend were in an abusive relationship. No note was found."
Chris, 42, and Deanna Daughtry's daughter killed herself while her boyfriend had "left the house to buy methamphetamine and the decedent was reported to be texting the same dealer asking for 'something' to help her," the narrative summary in the report added.
The medical examiner's report concluded: "The cause of death is classified as “Hanging.” The circumstances, as provided, are consistent with manner classification of 'Suicide.'"
HER FAMILY SPEAKS OUT
She died in her Tennessee home, with the American Idol star's family calling her "generous and loving."
"Our beloved Daughter Hannah Price passed away on November 12th, 2021," the family's statement read, per PEOPLE.

"Much speculation has been made since that date, and after a full investigation by law enforcement we are now able to speak in further detail."
The family said Hannah had mental health struggles "from a young age," and "was in and out of therapy and treatment centers" for years.
"As Hannah got older, she struggled to find her footing and began using drugs and often found herself in abusive relationships," the statement continued.
"Just months after losing her biological father to suicide, Hannah was the victim of a crime and was shot in the face. We did everything we could to support her."
UNSPEAKABLE FINAL DAY
On the morning of her death, Hannah reached out to her family and said she "was in fear for her life" after her boyfriend allegedly physically attacked her and took her car, according to the statement shared with PEOPLE.
The family said they called the Fentress County Police Department to perform a wellness check, which was performed – and the police left without incident after speaking to Hannah and determining that she was "OK."
Hannah was later found dead by hanging with her boyfriend having called 911.
She was pronounced dead at the scene, and an investigation by Fentress County DA, Fentress County Sheriff Office and the Knoxville Medical Examiners Office determined her official cause of death with no evidence of foul play.
Her family added: "Hannah was a generous and loving person who wanted more for herself and others. She will forever be in the hearts and minds of those of us who love her."
"We ask for your continued privacy at this time while we grieve."
HER DIFFICULT LAST YEARS

Months later Hannah, who reportedly has two children, was allegedly shot in the face as she was caught in a run-in with gang members in Tennessee.
According to Hannah's social media, she needed surgery and was given a prosthetic eye after being shot.
Hannah set up a GoFundMe in October 2018, after the incident.
She wrote: “Hi I am Hannah Price and I am raising money for my medical bills.
“I was airlifted after being shot in Humboldt TN Oct 12, 2018, and had emergency surgery. I’m also raising money to pay for my next surgery. I do have insurance so it covers most of it but I have an out-of-pocket pay of about $120."
Additionally, Hannah and her boyfriend Bobby Jolly were arrested in April 2021 in a hit-and-run accident in Tennessee, according to ABC6.
Per police reports, Bobby allegedly shot at another car in an apparent road rage incident. They were both charged with aggravated assault.
