In shocking news today Kristoff St. John, who has starred as Neil Winters on the “Young and the Restless” since 1991 was found dead on Sunday, according to a TMZ report.
It is being reported that friends went to check on the star at his home in San Fernando Valley, and found his body. Police and paramedics were alerted and responded to the house. We’re told St. John was pronounced dead on the scene.
Kristoff's role on the “Young and the Restless” 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 committed suicide in 2014, while getting treatment at a mental health facility.
In 2017, around the anniversary of Julian’s suicide, Kristoff threatened to end his life the same way his son did just 3 years earlier.
We are certainly praying for their entire family.
