Young and the Restless star Kristoff St. John’s death Sunday has shocked both fans and his fellow actors alike.
Authorities found St. John, 52, unresponsive Sunday afternoon, according to multiple reports. Us Weekly reports that paramedics were called to his Los Angeles home where he was pronounced dead at the scene. There are no reports of foul play.
According to Today.com, police said his death was the result of a possible alcohol overdose. The actor, who played Neil Winters on The Young and The Restless for more than 3 decades, had been reportedly struggling emotionally since the 2014 suicide of his son Julian. Just weeks ago, he posted about the 24-year-old’s death, on his Twitter page.
The actor leaves behind 2 children and a fiance, Kseniya Mikhaleva, whom he had just asked to marry him a few months ago.
