So sad...Andrew Koenig, who played Kirk Cameron's friend "Boner" on the 1980s sitcom Growing Pains, has been missing since February 14th and was found dead yesterday in Vancouver, B.C. Reports say he took his own life.


He was only 41 years old.

He had been clinically depressed for quite some time and had stopped taking anti-depressants. This just breaks my heart...I hate that he felt so alone that, in his mind, he had no other way out.

Celebrities are showing their sympathy via Twitter:

R.I.P. Andrew.

Have you ever known anyone to be clinically depressed?
