Report: Patrick Farrow committed suicide

Actress Mia Farrow's sculptor brother Patrick died this week from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, a Vermont coroner said Wednesday.

These findings are consistent with evidence found during the investigation, Chief Medical Examiner Steven Shapiro told People magazine. Mr. Farrow's wife contacted 911 upon discovering her husband unresponsive in their home.

Shapiro added that since Farrow's death was determined to be a suicide, police will not comment further on the case.

Farrow, 66, was discovered dead Monday at the Castleton, Vt., home he shared with his artist wife Susan.
