Mia Farrow’s 27-year-old son, Thaddeus Wilk Farrow, has died after being found seriously injured in his vehicle in Connecticut. 

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

Officials say there appeared to be no criminal aspect to his death and did not release additional details. An autopsy is planned. 

Representatives for the actress did not immediately return messages Thursday. 


State police say Thaddeus Farrow lived in Torrington, about a 24-mile drive from where he was found on a road Wednesday. Public records show he lived at his mother’s property until a few years ago. 

The actress adopted Thaddeus Farrow, who contracted polio in an orphanage in Kolkata, India, and was paralyzed from the waist down.
