Chris Daughtry still processing the tragic loss
Authorities arrested Price's boyfriend, Bobby Jolly, on Friday in connection with the case. He was reportedly taken into custody at Fentress County jail. Like Price, Jolly is reportedly around 25.
As of now, Jolly has not officially been named a suspect in Price's murder.
Price and Jolly's previous run-in with the law
According to WATE-TV, Price and Jolly were charged with aggravated assault resulting from road rage on April 23 in Tennessee. The report stated that the two were involved in a hit-and-run where they used a gun to intimidate the other party in the dispute.
The driver of the other vehicle claimed that Jolly, who was driving, shot at him. Meanwhile, both admitted using a gun for intimidation when highway patrol officers pulled them over. However, they denied firing it. A search of their vehicle turned up a .22-caliber rifle.

Before she was found dead on Friday, Price faced many hardships. In March 2018, she lost her biological father, Randall Scott Price, to suicide. A few months later, some Tennessee gang members shot Price in the face during a conflict. Following this, she required eye surgery and was left with a prosthetic eye.
25-year-old Hannah Price is survived by her mother Deanna Daughtry and stepfather Chris Daughtry. As per reports, Price was the mother of two children.
