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

Connecticut authorities have ruled Farrow’s death a suicide, saying he shot himself in the torso. The state medical examiner’s office determined the cause of death Thursday after an autopsy.

Farrow tweeted Thursday afternoon that she is heartbroken by the death of Thaddeus, and urged people to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

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.
