Moses Farrow’s remarkably brave statement proclaiming and clearly demonstrating the innocence of his father Woody Allen of trumped-up allegations from 25 years ago seems to have sparked a new movement to shine a spotlight on the child abuse that WAS allegedly committed — not by Woody – but by Woody’s accuser – the mother of Moses Farrow, Dylan Farrow and Ronan Farrow (plus 11 others) – Mia Farrow.
Most media sources claim my sister Tam died of “heart failure” at the age of 21. In fact, Tam struggled with depression for much of her life, a situation exacerbated by my mother refusing to get her help, insisting that Tam was just “moody.” One afternoon in 2000, after one final fight with Mia, which ended with my mother leaving the house, Tam committed suicide by overdosing on pills. My mother would tell others that the drug overdose was accidental, saying that Tam, who was blind, didn’t know which pills she was taking. But Tam had both an ironclad memory and sense of spatial recognition. And, of course, blindness didn’t impair her ability to count.
The details of Tam’s overdose and the fight with Mia that precipitated it were relayed directly to me by my brother Thaddeus, a first-hand witness. Tragically, he is no longer able to confirm this account. Just two years ago, Thaddeus also committed suicide by shooting himself in his car, less than 10 minutes from my mother’s house.
