Missing “Growing Pains” actor’s body found in the woods hanging from a tree:
Andrew Koenig reportedly hanged himself from a tree in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. A source close to the Koenig investigation revealed to E! News that the 41-year-old actor, best known for playing Boner in “Growning Pains,” was found Thursday hanging from a tree. Koenig, who went missing on Feb. 14, had been clinically depressed and sent his father a “despondent” letter on the 16th.
During a private search conducted by 11 family and friends, the actor’s body was found so deep in the forest that the source told E!, “Andrew didn’t want to be found.” “My son took his own life,” Koenig said, then urged others not to ignore signs of depression in others. A spokesperon for the police told E! that foul play had been ruled out. Koenig disappeared after reportedly turning down multiple jobs and clearing out his Venice Beach apartment. In honor of his memory, Koenig’s parents ask fans to donate to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline or the U.S. Campaign for Burma.
