Kristoff St. John died last month in California. Now, the official report from the coroner's office is shedding some light on his untimely passing. He was only 52-years-old.
"The 'Young and the Restless' star's official cause of death is listed as hypertrophic heart disease and is categorized as accidental, according to the report obtained by TMZ. The disease makes it difficult for the heart to pump blood and often goes undiagnosed," wrote TMZ.
Now, more news is coming in about Kristoff's final days. It is being revealed that he was released from a mental hospital just two days before his death. Police were called to check on him and found him at his home after he had already passed away.
"We broke the story ... 52-year-old Kristoff was found dead last month at his home in the San Fernando Valley. Law enforcement sources say one of the actor's friends went to check on him and found his body. Police and paramedics responded, and we're told Kristoff was pronounced dead on the scene," wrote TMZ.
Kristoff had reportedly checked himself in at UCLA's Medical Center for issues relating to depression. Now, his death is being investigated. Many wonder if his recent battle with depression played any role in his death.
