Andrew Koenig’s Body Found in Stanley Park
The body of Growing Pains actor Andrew Koenig has been found in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. The actor’s father, Walter, confirmed the report, saying that his son “took his own life.” Andrew’s parents reported the actor who played Boner in the 1980’s television series as missing after they received a letter from him. The young Koenig sounded distraught in the letter, according to Walter. Andrew was last seen alive on February 14 when he left a friend’s apartment in Vancouver.
Koenig’s body was found in an isolated section of the more than 1000-acre park. Police spent about a week searching for Andrew, who was reportedly suffering from clinical depression. The 41-year-old actor played bit roles in several television series after Growing Pains was axed in 1992. He also dabbled as a stand-up comedian, film producer, and voice talent. He provided the voice for Ambush and Night Creeper Leader in the G.I. Joe cartoon series in the 1990s.
