New details have been released about the final days of “The Young and the Restless” star Kristoff St. John’s life.
According to his autopsy report, obtained by The Blast, St. John was admitted to a mental health hospital just a week before his sudden death.
The report stated, “The decedent had been admitted to Las Encinas Mental Health Hospital in Pasadena on 01/26/2019 for threatening to hurt himself and alcohol abuse. The decedent was released on 02/01/2019 and went to his residence.”
“He was released from a mental health hospital on 02/01/2019 following a 72-hour hold. No suicide note was found. No trauma is noted and no foul play is suspected in this case,” the report added.
The report noted that St. John had “a history of alcohol abuse, bipolar disorder and suicidal ideations.”
Based on online coroner case records, Kristoff’s cause of death is listed as hypertrophic heart disease. His death was “accidental,” brought on by an alcohol overdose.
“Extra” recently spoke with his ex-wife Mia St. John, who opened up about their last phone call. She said, “Even though we talked every day, this call was a very different call. He kept saying he wanted to die, but he said it in a different way this time that really struck me. He tells me to hang on one second, that Julian’s at the door, and I just started screamingm 'No!'”
St. John was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home, months after the fourth anniversary of his son Julian’s suicide.
