Young & the Restless’ Star Kristoff St. John Dead at 52
Young & the Restless star Kristoff St. John was found dead in his home on Sunday, the soap opera star was found by one of his friends in San Fernando Valley, police arrived on the scene and pronounced him dead.
No foul play was found, however, alcohol is suspected to have played a role. St. John’s ex-wife Mia St. John took to social media and expressed her anger over the death of Kristoff writing, “THAT HOSPITAL KILLED OUR SON @TheArtofJulian THEN MY HUSBAND @kristoffstjohn1 THATS WHAT HAPPENED! THEY KILLED MY FAMILY”
Kristoff’s son committed suicide in 2014 while in a mental facility, the St. John’s sued the hospital for negligence and the suit was settled. In 2017 on the anniversary of Julian’s death, Kristoff was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold after threatening to kill himself with a gun.
Kristoff had earned nine Daytime Emmys for his role as Neil Winters, a role he had since 1991, he also won 10 NAACP Image Awards. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kristoff St. John’s friends and family.
