R.I.P. Missing Actor’s Body Found Hanging From A Tree In Vancouver

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.

    depression is no joke. he was getting all these offers, and from the outside it would seem like he could just get it back together. in reality, depression is wreaking havic in his mind.
    to me, it seems like depression just keeps the good things out and it’s so hard to change that filter system that focuses so mjuch on the bad. i dunno…i hate to hear stuff like this. life should be beautiful for us all, but i’m naive

    Ill tell you what drives people to kill themselves. SOCIETY. Society and all of its standards of beauty and success among many other things. All of the things that REALLY dont matter. LOVE SHALL SET YOU FREE.Next time you have something negative to say to someone think about how it might make them feel. You never know what is going on in someones life. Bless his soul and F society.

    Depression is no joke. those who have never experienced it will never understand those who have or suffer from it.

    being depressed and feeling “blue” are two different things … it’s not so easy to bring yourself out of depression & those around you, who are not depressed themselves, are the ones that you need to help you … but since they don’t understand the illness … most often you won’t get the help that you need …

    i speak from experience …

    The fact that people who take there own life go to h.e.l.l should be enough not to do it. After living h.e.l.l on earth you guarantee yourself to live hell after earth as well…….
