Young And the Restless News – St. John Was Nominated For Several Awards
St. John had played the character of Neil Winters since 1991. He earned several accolades including 9 Emmy Award nominations and 10 NAACP Image awards.
Pace Mitchell also appeared in “Cold Case,” “Chappelle’s Show,” and “The Hard Times of RJ Berger.” The viewers, cast and crew of “The Young and The Restless” as well as the entire acting industry have been mourning the death of St. John.
According to the Los Angeles County coroner, St. John’s death was accidental. It was due to hypertrophic heart disease. His heart was unable to pump blood and this condition is often left undiagnosed.
The coroner also noted alcohol abuse as a contributing factor to the actor’s untimely demise. He was found dead at his home on Woodland Hills on February 3 by a friend who stopped by to check on him.

In a report by TMZ, St. John voluntarily admitted himself into UCLA Medical Center in January due to depression problems, which was associated with his son’s suicide in 2014. He was released from the facility a few days before his death. It would seem that St. John has long been emotionally unstable.
In 2017, on the third year anniversary of his son’s death, St. John threatened to commit suicide using a gun. Because of this, St. John was forced to undergo a psychiatric evaluation while being placed on a 72-hour hold.
