Friends of St. John, 52, best known for his role on The Young and the Restless, found his body Feb. 3 at his San Fernando Valley home, according to law enforcement. A source told TMZ at the time that there were no signs of foul play but that alcohol may have been involved.
St. John’s ex-wife, Mia St. John, speculated that his death may have been related to the death of their son Julian in 2014. Julian died by suicide while being treated at a mental health facility. The St. Johns sued the facility for negligence and eventually reached a settlement.
The soap opera star was also hospitalized and placed under psychiatric evaluation in 2017 after sending several photos of himself with a gun to his head to an ex-girlfriend. When police arrived at his home, they confiscated two guns and placed the actor under a 72-hour hold for mental evaluation.
