An autopsy is planned to determine the cause of Farrow’s death. Police says they won’t release additional information until it’s complete.
Vermont State Police Lt. Timothy Oliver called the death suspicious in a written statement Tuesday. He won’t say why. He hasn’t returned a telephone call seeking details.
Police do not suspect foul play at the time; however, there were some things out of the ordinary at the scene; he didn’t elaborate.
From the local area news paper, The Rutland Herald, ‘Sculptor found dead in gallery’.
State Sen. William Carris, a longtime friend of Farrow’s, said the artist’s friends and family were distraught over his death, especially his wife, who Carris said was “devastated.”
“He was a good friend who cared more about his family than anyone I know,” he said. “He was a great husband, father, artist and world citizen.”
Farrow worked as a professional sculptor for more than 35 years and he was a fellow in the National Sculpture Society. For Rutland residents, his most recognizable piece is “The Leash,” a sculpted dog tugging on an invisible chain. The piece is a permanent resident of Depot Park in the city’s downtown.
