Growing Pains star’s body found in Vancouver park


Andrew Koenig, the Growing Pains actor who was missing in Vancouver for the past two weeks, has been found dead at the age of 41. Police confirmed that a body was discovered in Vancouver’s Stanley Park that was “believed to be that of Andrew Koenig.” The actor, son of Star Trek‘s Walter Koenig, played Kirk Cameron’s best buddy “Boner” Stabone for the first four seasons of Growing Pains, before leaving the show. (His character was written off the show in an episode where he joined the Marines.) His father said his son stopped taking his anti-depressants last year and was “probably in a very depressed state.” “My son took his own life,” Walter Koening confirmed tearfully at a press conference shortly after the body was found. He had cleaned out his Los Angeles apartment before going to Vancouver, and was reported missing after he missed a flight that was scheduled to take him back to Los Angeles.
