VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Vancouver police say “Growing Pains” actor Andrew Koenig has been found dead. At a press conference in the downtown park where his body was found, police said foul play was not suspected, but would not release a cause of death because the coroner is still investigating.

The actor’s father, Walter Koenig, said his son “took his own life.” Walter Koenig played Pavel Chekov on the original “Star Trek” TV series.

Friends found the body at around noon Thursday in a heavily wooded area about 100 feet (30 meters) from a popular foot path.

Koenig, 41, was visiting friends in Vancouver when he went missing more than a week ago.

The Venice, California, native had a recurring role on the 1980s sitcom as Boner, a pal of star Kirk Cameron’s character, Mike.

Since he was a good man trying to do good deeds, the powers of Heaven found a way to make his suicide a benefit to many others, and how clever it was, because many others will remain alive to also do good deeds, so don’t fret, he died just how he wanted to >>> http://worldresarchnews.wordpress.com/ <<<
