A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner told People that St. John was pronounced dead on arrival.
Power couple Neil and Drucilla Winters
Victoria Rowell, who was St. John‘s on-screen wife on The Young And The Restless, is speaking out for the first time after the actor’s unexpected death.
She starred alongside St. John as the beloved power couple Neil and Drucilla Winters on the show from 1993 to 1998 and again from 2003 to 2007.
The 59-years-old released a statement on Wednesday, saying:
Kristoff was a joy. He lived for the day. He loved working in film, prime time and starring on The Young and the Restless.
Former cast members returning for the special tribute include Shemar Moore (Malcolm), Eileen Davidson (Ashley) and Christel Khalil (Lily).
It is set to air towards the end of April.
Many fans are already looking forward to the tribute episode. Admirers of St. John are still recovering from his sudden passing.
I'm glad with Angell & Judi coming back to #YR but other than Victoria, Shemar & Christel, the only name I care to hear come from then is the return of Tonya Lee Williams as Olivia Williams. I mean where has she been! @YandR_CBS #DontMakeMeGoOff— Colin Hughey (@mistacolin) April 10, 2019
