Andrew Koenig's Body Found

Andrew Koenig's Body Found

Former Growing Pains actor Andrew Koenig‘s body was found dead on Thursday (February 25) in Vancouver’s Stanley Park.

The 41-year-old had been missing for over a week and family and friends began to search for Andrew. On Thursday morning, Andrew‘s parents and 10 friends split into two groups and after about two hours, one group had found the body.

Andrew‘s dad, Walter Koenig said, “My son took his own life.” He also spoke out to others, saying, “If you can learn anything from this, it’s that there are people out there who really care, and you may not think so, and ultimately it may not be enough, but … before you make that final decision, check it out again, talk to somebody.”

RIP Andrew.

Very sad. I grew up watching him in “Growing Pains”. Loved that show. I pray he rests in peace. Very sad ending to a sensitive soul.

I loved watching Andrew and Kirk’s Cameron’s friendship on Growing Pains. Andrew seemed like such a happy guy. It is so sad to find out he died and to know the cause. I pray he rest in peace and my thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones. This is just so heartbreaking.

R.I.P Andrew

…i’m not an emotional guy when it comes to complete strangers.. but i was hoping they would find him and he’d be ok. i like the way his family and friends handled the situation with class and didn’t whoree themselves for attention.

How sad. :-( My heart goes out to his family and friends.

too young to die. rip andrew. and may you be resting peacefully young man. so sad. thanks for sharing your talent with us in “growing pains”. you are in heaven now.

My sympathy to Andrew’s family and friends, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Each year around the world, over 1 million people take their own lives. It IS a public health crisis.

good god! what planet are you living on?

My deepest condolences to all his family and friends.

I was hoping against hope that they would find him, but alas no. :(

RIP, Andrew and I certainly hope that you have now found the peace you were searching for.

His body found dead? Um what is wrong with that sentence….

Condolences to his family.

Depression is a terrible thing :’ [

Rest In Peace.

It is very sad but you need to rewrite it – his body was found dead?? No – either HE was found dead or his body was found (and most people are smart enough to realize what that means)

This is just horrible. I am so sorry to hear this.
I know the pain of loosing a child . My son took his life too. The pain is unbearable.

Such sad news…I liked his character “Boner” on Growing Pains…
May your soul rest in peace Andrew Koenig…

Suicide makes you look weak, that’s what Islam forbid it. Just suck it up for God’s sake and move forward! DIE OLD! Not through suicidal!!

what to why! typo!
