Andrew Koenig, TV ‘Growing Pains’ Actor Found Dead in Vancouver, Canada Missing Since 2/14/2010


The body of Andrew Koenig, a TV sitcom ‘Growing Pains’ actor who played ‘Boner’ was found yesterday in a park in Vancouver, Canada.  The body was found off a trail in a densely wooded area. Koenig had been missing since February 14, 2010.

Andrew Koenig was the son of Star Trek actor Walter Koenig who made a sad and tearful appearance following the news of the discovery of his son’;s body.

“My son took his own life,” Walter Koenig said, wife Judy at his side.

Andrew Koenig’s body was found in the woods off of a trail in the Vancouver park.

The body was found off a trail in a densely wooded area, and “was unseen from the path,” a police spokeswoman said. Police have no reason to believe foul play was involved, she said, and would not release a cause of death, as a coroner’s investigation has been opened.

Missing Andrew Koenig, who played best friend Richard “Boner” Stabone to Kirk Cameron’s Mike Seaver on the sitcom in the late 1980s, was last seen on Valentine’s Day in Vancouver, where he had been visiting friends. He was reported missing Feb. 18 after failing to catch a Feb. 16 flight home to the L.A. area. His cellphone was last used Feb. 16. Andrew’s parents, Walter and Judy Koenig, said they received a letter from him last week in which their son wrote in a “despondent tone.” He had stopped taking medication for depression about a year ago, said his father, one of the stars of the original “Star Trek” series. The Koenigs had arrived in Vancouver on Tuesday to assist in the search.

      How sad. I was hoping he would be found safe.

      Depression and mental illness are bad bad things.

      May he rest in peace..
