Ronan Farrow Remembers Late Brother Thaddeus With Sweet Photos

Thaddeus died by suicide last week.

Ronan Farrow wished his brother Thaddeus a sweet goodbye on Sunday, four days after his sibling’s death.

Thaddeus, a paraplegic due to polio, was adopted from an Indian orphanage in 1994 by actress Mia Farrow, Ronan’s biological mother. The 27-year-old died by suicide on Wednesday, Sept. 21.

“Rest in peace, brother. I never knew anyone stronger, or who overcame more,” Farrow wrote in a photo caption on Instagram.

A state medical examiner’s autopsy report states that he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the torso, according to the Associated Press.
