St. John was found by his close friend, Marc Clebanoff. Marc recalled that heartbreaking moment in an emotional Facebook post.

Clebanoff explained he went to St. John’s house to watch the Super Bowl together. When he entered the house, he found St. John breathless. Marc and Kristoff’s ex performed CPR until the ambulance arrived. Unfortunately, it was too late. The Young and the Restless star couldn’t make it.

In his post, Clebanoff addressed his late friend for the last time:

Rest in peace, my brother...I love you and the world is darker without you in it.

Who is to blame?

A few days after Kristoff’s passing, his former wife Mia St. John made a shocking statement blaming the medical staff for her ex’s demise.

Mia tweeted a controversial message, but soon, deleted it. The tweet said:

That hospital killed our son then my husband that's what happened! They killed my family.

It’s always heartbreaking to lose our loved ones. Marc Clebanoff called the day when he found his good friend lifeless to be one of the most challenging of his life.

Again, we want to express our deepest condolences to Kristoff St. John’s family. We hope Kristoff found his peace in heaven.
