Police did not release information on what type of "life threatening injury" Farrow suffered and later died from. Thaddeus was adopted by Mia Farrow after her relationship with Woody Allen had ended. The 71-year-old actress lives in Bridgewater, Connecticut.

Adopted son

Thaddeus was adopted by Mia Farrow from Calcutta, India, and he was a paraplegic due to Polio. He needed to use a wheelchair or crutches to be mobile, according to the "Connecticut Post." Farrow, who suffered from Polio as a child, has spent many years trying to raise awareness of this disease.

Death investigated

Police are not saying if Thaddeus was alone or with someone else when he was found suffering that "life-threatening injury" in the car, but they have said there is "no criminal aspect" expected with this incident, according to the "Darien Patch." Police are investigating his death today.

Back in 2013 during an interview Mia Farrow spoke about her son who was left with a disability from polio. He worked as an auto mechanic at the time of that interview and he wanted to become a police officer, according to the "Patch."
