When "The Young & the Restless" star, Kristoff St.John unexpectedly passed away on February 3rd, many assumed it was self-inflicted. The soap actor had never quite been the same since his son died in 2014 by suicide after battling mental illness. Now, we have all of the answers we have waited over a month for. The 52-year-old's actual cause of death was heart disease as well as an accidental alcohol overdose, according to the coroner and is being ruled an accident. Several former Y&R co-stars will be returning to the show for an official sendoff to St.John at the end of April, including Shemar Moore. We hope he is finally at peace and he and Julian are reunited though still very saddened at this tragic loss.
