Mia Farrow's brother killed himself, Vermont State Police and a spokeswoman for the actress have confirmed.

He died of a single gunshot wound to the head. The body of 66-year-old Patrick Farrow was found late Monday in his art studio, a converted church in the small town of Castleton. At the time, police said his death was considered "suspicious" because parts of the police investigation "did not add up."

"The family of Patrick Farrow is grieving the tragic loss of their beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle who sadly chose to take his own life," a rep for the actress said in a statement.
