Mia Farrow's 27-year-old son, Thaddeus Wilk Farrow, has died, People reports. According to a police report, the young man was found in his vehicle Wednesday with a "life-threatening injury." He was pronounced dead at Danbury Hospital in Connecticut at 2:30 p.m. It is unclear at this time what his exact injuries were, and Connecticut radio station WINY reports that an autopsy will be conducted. The aspiring police officer was paraplegic due to polio. Farrow, who adopted Thaddeus in Calcutta, India, in 1994, has yet to make a statement about the death. Her journalist son, Ronan Farrow, has not yet commented, either. A 2013 Vanity Fair profile of the actress featured this reflection about Thaddeus from his brother Isaiah. "[He's] the hidden gem of the family," Isaiah shared. "He is such a hard worker." We will update this story as more details emerge.
