Dammit. Just dammit.

Andrew Koenig's body has apparently been found...just breaking on cnn.com, news conference coming soon. :(

His dad, Star Trek's Walter Koenig, looked so devastated on the Today Show yesterday. I think he and wife Judy already knew their son was gone.

Some of the comments I've been reading on the CNN and USA Today websites have been just appalling, calling him selfish. What part of "severe depression" don't they understand? The man had a career, loving family, friends...but somehow he got so depressed that none of it mattered. I've been there- I know what it's like to not be able to see any hope or happiness in my future. Obviously for Andrew, he was unable to find peace.

I always enjoyed him on Growing Pains as "Boner". He seemed like a sweetheart of guy, and he will be missed by many. I hope he finds whatever peace he couldn't have in life. Sending prayers to the Koenig family and his friends. This is just a horrible story...I was really hoping he had just gone into hiding.

ETA- it's confirmed. Walter is speaking now- says son "took his own life". Oh. man. It's so hard to watch. I hope the family can get through this.
