Kristoff St. John, famously known for his role on the hit soap opera The Young and the Restless has died. He was 52. TMZ reports the actor was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home on Sunday by friends and family.
Unfortunately the St. John family is no stranger to tragedy. In 2014 the 10-time NAACP Image Award winner’s son Julian committed suicide while receiving treatment at a medical facility.
In 2017 Kristoff threatened to kill himself and was placed under psychiatric evaluation. When cops arrived to his LA home, they confiscated two guns and placed St. John under a 72-hour mental evaluation hold.
Take a look back at the nine-time Emmy award nominee as he talks about how he landed the role of Neil Winters in 1991.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the actor.
