Body of actor Andrew Koenig found in park

In what can be only described as a family's worst fears, the body of actor Andrew Koenig was discovered today in a Vancouver park. His father, Walter Koenig, who fans know as Pavel Chekov in the original Star Trek TV series and motion pictures, confirmed in a press conference Thursday that... "My son took his own life."

A body was reportedly found in Stanley Park, where the Koenigs had reported on Walter's official Web site all week Andrew was last seen. The younger Koenig was suffering from clinical depression, according to the family, and was believed to have turned down a couple of jobs and either sold or gave away many of his possessions before traveling to Toronto, and later Vancouver, which he considered a second home.

May Andrew Koenig find peace in death that eluded him in life.
