ROXBURY, Conn., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Mia Farrow has released a statement citing how "devastated" she is following the death of her son Thaddeus who recently committed suicide.
"We're devastated by the loss of Thaddeus, our beloved son and brother. He was wonderful, courageous person who overcame so much hardship in his short life," the actress wrote on Twitter Thursday.
"We miss him. Thank you for the outpouring of condolences and words of kindness," she continued before posting a link to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
"If you or someone you love needs help," Farrow said alongside a link to the foundations website.
Thaddeus, who was paraplegic and a polio survivor, was found inside his car Wednesday "suffering from life-threatening injuries" according to USA Today citing a police report. He was later taken to Danbury hospital in Connecticut where he was pronounced dead at the age of 27.
On Thursday, the Connecticut medical examiner's office concluded that Thaddeus died from a "suicide gunshot wound" to the torso.
Farrow had adopted Thaddeus from an orphanage in Calcutta, India, in 1994.
Notably, in a Vanity Fair interview from 2013, Thaddeus spoke of his experience being adopted stating, "It was scary to be brought to a world of people whose language I did not understand, with different skin colors."
"The fact that everyone loved me was a new experience, overwhelming at first," he continued.
