Former Child Star Commits Suicide in Vancouver

The body of Growing Pains star Andrew Koenig was found in a Vancouver park Thursday, the victim of a suicide.

The actor’s body was found about 11:30 a.m. in a heavily wooded area just off a bridle path in 1,000-acre Stanley Park, a favorite place for Koenig to frequent during his visits to Vancouver.

The body was found by a private search team of his family and friends. His father was in the midst of searching when he received a cell phone call from other searchers who discovered the body.

Koenig, 41, disappeared on Feb. 16 while traveling to the British Columbia city previously played on the hit sitcom Growing Pains as Kirk Cameron’s pal Boner.  Koenig battled depression and cleared out his Los Angeles apartment about three weeks ago before traveling to Vancouver, where he once lived.
