Mia Farrow's Son Thaddeus Is Dead at 27; Ruled Suicide

Tragic news from the Farrow family as the Associated Press reports that Mia Farrow's 27-year-old, paraplegic son fatally shot himself in the torso before being found in his vehicle along a Connecticut road. Thaddeus Wilk Farrow was found seriously wounded in his vehicle in Roxbury on Wednesday, about 8 miles from his mother’s home in neighboring Bridgewater. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital. The medical examiner’s office determined the cause of death was suicide during an autopsy. State police had said there was no criminal element to the death.

In 2000, Thaddeus Farrow and his mother participated in a global summit on polio eradication at the United Nations in New York. “If people could follow Thaddeus through just one day of his life and see just how hard it is for him, I think there would be no abstainees in saying ‘let there be no more polio,'” Mia Farrow said at the time. Thaddeus is the third of Mia's 10 adopted children to die. Tam Farrow died from heart failure in 2000 and Lark Previn died from AIDS-related pneumonia in 2008.

Condolences to his family and friends.
