Mia Farrow’s son Thaddeus Farrow has died. Thaddeus was pronounced dead at Danbury Hospital in Connecticut on Wednesday, September 21, after suffering life-threatening injuries, police told the Hartford Courant. He was 27. 

According to the newspaper, the actress’ son was found in his car Wednesday afternoon, and police are investigating his death, which they said had “no criminal aspect.” A cause of death has not yet been released.

TMZ was first to report the news.

Thaddeus, one of Farrow’s 10 adopted children, was a paraplegic due to his battle with polio when he was a child living in Calcutta, India.

The Rosemary’s Baby actress, 71, adopted Thaddeus in 1994 from an Indian orphanage following her split from Woody Allen, who she dated for 12 years until 1992.

The Peyton Place star is the mother of 14 kids, including her biological children — twins Matthew and Sascha, and Fletcher Previn with ex-husband André Previn; she shared Ronan Farrow with ex Allen.

Two of her adopted children, Tam and Lark, are also deceased.

Oscar-winning director Allen later married Mia’s estranged adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn in 1997.
