R.I.P. BONER

By / 02.26.10

Andrew Koenig, known before this week as the guy who played Boner Stabone on “Growing Pains,” was found dead in a Vancouver park yesterday, the result of suicide.

Walter Koenig, an actor best known for his role as Chekov on “Star Trek,” appeared near tears as he sat with his wife before reporters in Stanley Park and described being called to a nearby part of the park where searchers had found the body of their 41-year-old son. “I went to the site,” Walter Koenig said. “My son took his own life.”

Really? Chekov and Boner? And here I thought the memorable-supporting-role gene skipped a generation.

Koenig’s body was found in the “Bridal Path” area of the park, Constable Jana McGuinness, a spokeswoman for the Vancouver Police Department, told reporters. It was not visible from the path and had been missed during a police search of the area Tuesday. “Sadly, at noon, Andrew’s body was found in the park by family and friends who had initiated their own private search,” she said.

Bang-up job there, constable. “Oh, we didn’t realize we were supposed to look for a body¬†off the path! I’d like to thank the family and friends who took our job into their own hands. Hey, look over there! It’s the Olympics!”
