‘Young and the Restless’ star Kristoff St. John dies at 52

It appears St. John's death is not considered suspicious, as LAPD officials confirmed they have passed the case on to the Los Angeles Coroner's Office.

His body was discovered when a friend went to check on him. Paramedics who were summoned to the house pronounced him dead at the scene. No foul play was involved, TMZ reports, though alcohol may have been involved.

St. John's son, Julian St. John, died of an apparent suicide in 2014 while in a mental health facility. He won a Daytime Emmy in 1992 for outstanding younger actor in a drama series and won 10 NAACP Image Awards. He was a big part of the Winters family.

Four years into St. John's Y&R tenure, the soap introduced Neil's angry half-brother Malcolm, played by a then-unknown Shemar Moore. He also did episodic work on shows including The Cosby Show, A Different World and Laverne & Shirley. However, his personal life has been in shambles for the past five years.

In 2017, St. John underwent psychiatric treatment after a reported scare regarding his mental health. Almost two years ago, the Daytime Emmy nominee threatened suicide, leading to a 72-hour psychiatric hold.

His fiance, model Kseniya Mikhaleva, expressed her grief on Instagram.
