Andrew Koenig found dead tonight
I did a post earlier in the week telling you guys Andrew Koenig -- best known for his role as Kirk Cameron's pal Boner on the '80s sitcom Growing Pains -- was missing. His family had said he was suffering from depression. His body was found tonight in a densely wooded area in Vancouver, B.C.
His dad, Walter Koenig(Chekov from Star Trek), issued a statement saying "My son took his own life." In regards to depression, he added..."Don't ignore it; don't rationalize it," "Extend a hand."
Such a sad ending to a short life. Andrew was just 41.
