ROXBURY, Conn. (AP) Connecticut authorities have ruled the death of Mia Farrow's 27-year-old son, Thaddeus Wilk Farrow, a suicide, saying he shot himself in the torso.

State police said Thaddeus Farrow was found in his vehicle Wednesday afternoon in Roxbury with a life-threatening injury and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

The state medical examiner's office determined the cause of death Thursday after an autopsy.

 

Mia Farrow says her family is devastated by the suicide of her son.  The actress writes on Twitter that the 27-year-old was a courageous person who ``overcame so much hardship in his short life.'' Thaddeus Farrow contracted polio in Kolkata, India, and was paralyzed from the waist down. The actress adopted him in the mid-1990s.

State police say Thaddeus Farrow lived in Torrington, about a 24-mile drive from Roxbury. Public records show he had lived at his mother's property in nearby Bridgewater until a few years ago.
