We are devastated for Thaddeus Farrow’s family after his tragic death by suicide earlier this month, and our hearts are breaking even more after Ronan Farrow’s latest Instagram tribute. See the sweet message he sent to his little brother right here.
Four days after Thaddeus Farrow’s shocking death, his big brother, Ronan Farrow, 28, took to Instagram to share a heartbreaking message. The activist uploaded two throwback pics of his sibling, one of him alone and one of them together, and added the caption, “Rest in peace, brother. I never knew anyone stronger, or who overcame more.”
When news broke of the 27-year-old’s sudden death on Sept. 21, it was reported that he had died of a “life-threatening injury.” Just one day later, the Connecticut Office of Chief Medical Examiner confirmed that the cause of death was suicide, as Thaddeus had a “self-inflicted gunshot wound to his torso.”
“We’re devastated by the loss of Thaddeus, our beloved son and brother,” Mia Farrow wrote in a statement. “He was a wonderful, courageous person who overcame so much hardship in his short life. We miss him. Thank you for the outpouring of condolences and words of kindness. If you or someone you love needs help, or if you want to support a group doing life saving work, please visit: http://www.afsp.org.”
Thaddeus was left paraplegic after suffering from Polio at a young age. Mia adopted him from India when he was just three years old, right after she ended her relationship with Woody Allen. Sadly, this is the third child the actress has lost — Tam was just 19 when she died of heart failure in 2000 and Lark passed away at 35 in 2008. So tragic.
