https://www.tmz.com/2019/02/04/kristoff-st-john-dead-dies-alcohol-young-and-the-restless/

star of the long-running soap opera 'Young and the Restless,' was found dead Sunday ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us one of Kristoff's friends went to check on him at the actor's home in San Fernando Valley, and found his body. Police and paramedics were alerted and responded to the house. We're told Kristoff was pronounced dead on the scene.

We're told there was no sign of foul play, however one source says alcohol might have played a role.

Kristoff has played Neil Winters on 'Y&R' since 1991 -- a role that earned him 9 Daytime Emmy Award nominations. He also won 10 NAACP Image Awards.

Kristoff has a tragic and troubled history with suicide. He and his ex-wife, boxer Mia St. John, lost their son, Julian, when he took his own life in 2014, while getting treatment at a mental health facility. Mia and Kristoff sued the facility for negligence. The suit was eventually settled.

In 2017, around the anniversary of Julian's suicide, Kristoff threatened to kill himself with a gun. Cops placed him under a 72-hour hold for psychiatric evaluation.

Mia reacted to Kristoff's death with an emotional post on social media, and it's clear she believes his death is connected to Julian's.

After their son's death, Kristoff and Mia founded the El Sabor es Poder (Knowledge is Power) Foundation to battle mental illness.

Kristoff was 52.

RIP

Sounds like another Brian & Daisy Keith situation. St.John's son Julian killed himself in 2014, and around the anniversary of his son's suicide in 2017, Kristoff threatened to kill himself with a gun. (NT)And now Kristoff St.John is dead at 52.Monday, February 04, 11:34:34am
