According to the statement, Hannah suffered from mental illness since childhood and spent a lot of time in therapy. Hannah struggled with her mental illness as she grew older and started using drugs. She also found herself in abusive relationships.

According to the family, Hannah, who had lost her biological father by suicide a few months earlier, was the victim in a crime that resulted in Hannah being shot in the head. We supported her in every way possible and got her the treatment she needed. Hannah was just getting treatment. We were making plans to get closer to our family.
