So sad. Recently I wrote about 41 year old Andrew Koenig having gone missing since Valentine’s Day here in Vancouver, and his last activity (cell phone, etc.) being traced back to Stanley Park, downtown. Well a couple hours ago they found the Growing Pains star’s body. He was supposed to back in the US on February 16th

His family has sad that he suffered from depression and he was last in Vancouver staying with Burlesque star Jenny Magenta. She was very worried about him and even commented on my last article, since I was helping spread the work and Police tip line. It must be a terribly sad time for her, as well as Koenig’s family.

At the last Olympics in Beijing, he was arrested for protesting China’s Human Rights Violations. Even though he was suffering from depression, I wonder if there was any connection with this year’s Olympics and he was perhaps making a statement of some sort? Just a thought. No word on whether or not he had left a note or how he committed suicide.

Walter Koenig, Andrew’s father and also an actor made the statement in Stanley Park today (video later in the post) that his son had committed suicide, and that his body has been discovered in the park. He also urged people with suicidal thoughts to seek help. His father, mother, family, and friends had been searching for him since the 14th.
