Mia Farrow’s son’s death confirmed as suicide

Actress Mia Farrow has paid tribute to her “beloved” son following his suicide.
Thaddeus Wilk Farrow shot himself in the torso on Wednesday, authorities in Connecticut said. Police said the 27-year-old was discovered with life-threatening injuries in his vehicle, prompting early media speculation that he had been involved in a car crash.
However, his death has now been confirmed as suicide.
Thaddeus, an adopted son of Rosemary’s Baby star Farrow, contracted polio in an orphanage in Kolkata, India, and was paralysed from the waist down. The actress paid tribute with a post on Twitter, including a link to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) charity website.
“We’re devastated by the loss of Thaddeus, our beloved son and brother,” she said.
“He was a wonderful courageous person who overcame so much hardship in his short life. We miss him.
“Thank you for the outpouring of condolences and words of kindness.”
She added: “If you or someone you love needs help, or if you want to support a group doing life-saving work, please visit (AFSP).”
Thaddeus lived in Torrington, about 24 miles from Roxbury, Connecticut, where he was found. The state medical examiner’s office determined the cause of death on Thursday following a post-mortem examination. Farrow has largely given up acting and now concentrates on human rights campaigning and her role as a UNICEF ambassador. She had 14 adopted and biological children in total, including Soon-Yi Previn, who is now married to her former husband Woody Allen Thaddeus Farrow spoke about being adopted in an interview with Vanity Fair.
