Our Deepest Symapthies To The Koenig Family

Our Deepest Symapthies To The Koenig Family

Andrew Koenig, son of Walter Koenig and star of several TV appearances (including a long running stint on "Growing Pains" and a guest appearance on DS9) was found dead from an apparent suicide.  Andrew had gone missing in Vacouver, British Columbia on February 16th, sparking a flury of activity on the internet and among Trek fans, who tried to help solve the mystery. 

Andrew's body was discovered around 11:30 am today in the 1,000-acre Stanley Park, a favorite place for Koenig to frequent during his visits to Vancouver.

"My son took his own life," his father, Walter Koenig, said in an emotional news conference in the park.

The body was found by a private search team of his family and friends. His father was in the midst of searching when he received a cell phone call from other searchers who discovered the body.

"I went to the site," Walter Koenig said, adding that's when he discovered his son had committed suicide.

Police and his family declined to comment on how Koenig took his life.  (source

Our deepest sympathies and heartfelt greif go out to the Koenig family in this time of loss.
