"Young and the Restless" Star Kristoff St. John Sadly Found Dead
This is certainly sad news to begin the week. Longtime "Young and the Restless" star Kristoff St. John has been found dead. Here's what we know so far. According to TMZ :
Kristoff's friends went to check on him at his home in the San Fernando Valley and found his body. Police and paramedics were alerted and responded to the house. Kristoff was pronounced dead on the scene.
There was believed to be no signs of foul play. However, a TMZ source says alcohol might have played a role. You may remember that Kristoff and his ex-wife, boxer Mia St. John , lost their son, Julian , to suicide when he took his own life in 2014 while getting treatment at a mental health facility. And Kristoff, himself, threatened to commit suicide in 2017. At that time, police placed him under a 72-hour hold for psychiatric evaluation.
