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.

Representatives for the actress did not return messages.

State police say Thaddeus Farrow lived in Torrington, about a 24-mile (39-kilometer) drive from Roxbury. Public records show he had lived at his mother’s property in nearby Bridgewater until a few years ago.
