Kristoff St. John, star of the long-running soap opera 'Young and the Restless,' was found dead Sunday ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us one of Kristoff's friends went to check on him at the actor's home in San Fernando Valley, and found his body. Police and paramedics were alerted and responded to the house. We're told Kristoff was pronounced dead on the scene.

We're told there was no sign of foul play, however one source says alcohol might have played a role.

Kristoff has played Neil Winters on 'Y&R' since 1991 -- a role that 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 took his own life in 2014, while getting treatment at a mental health facility. Mia and Kristoff sued the facility for negligence. The suit was eventually settled.

In 2017, around the anniversary of Julian's suicide, Kristoff threatened to kill himself with a gun. Cops placed him under a 72-hour hold for psychiatric evaluation.

Kristoff St. John Cause of Death Determined to be Heart Disease Caused by Alcohol Abuse
Quote:
According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner, St. John died from hypertrophic heart disease, but investigators noted his heart muscle had ”myocardial bridging,” and showed signs of alcohol abuse. The death is categorized as an accident.

As we reported, St. John died February on the day of the Super Bowl. The star was pronounced dead at his home after police responded to a possible alcohol overdose.

An autopsy was performed and St. John’s cause of death has been deferred until officials can get toxicology results.

I was only aware that alcohol can help your cholesterol level. Didn't realize it could contribute to heart disease.

LOS ANGELES — As "The Young and the Restless" head writer Josh Griffith screened the episode in which Neil Winters' family learns of his death, the tears began to flow.

Viewers might brace for a similar reaction when the CBS daytime serial says farewell to Neil and to Kristoff St. John, the actor who played the character for nearly three decades. St. John, who died at age 52 in February of heart disease, helped cement the prominence of major African-American characters in the traditionally white soap opera world.

During a four-episode story arc airing Tuesday through Friday, Neil's friends and family gather in fictional Genoa City to remember the businessman whose full life included complicated relationships and a battle with alcoholism.
