E! Online is reporting that Vancouver Police located the body of Walter Koenig's son Andrew in Stanley Park today. Andrew, who is probably best known for his role as "Boner" on Growing Pains was reported to be suffering from depression and his death is the result of an apparent suicide.


I know I join with everyone here in expressing my most heartfelt condolences and support to Mr. Koenig and his family in the light of the tragedy. Depression is a terrible disease and the loss of someone to this is a tragedy to everyone.

Godspeed and best wishes.

I don't pray very often these days, but I offered up a pray for Andrew and his grieving family last night. May they find comfort from those who surround them...

My condolences to the Koenig family. The loss of a son is the worst tragedy for a father or a mother.

Without trying to sound egotistical... (...) I have my own ideas and aspirations which were countlessly shot down in the past. I've no interest in being in that position again.

My deepest sympathies - and prayers (I too am not religious) to Waltar and his wife.
You know, I may not pray much, but I don't cry much either...But I have to tell you, watching that clip of walter - I had tears running down both sides of my face; I feel for him so deeply.
