Y&R Star Kristoff St. John Autopsy Report rule Heart Disease as His Cause of Death

Published

on

According to the autopsy report, Kristoff St. John was discharged from a mental health facility just 2 days before his death. The report says he was admitted after threatening to harm himself.

The report also states that St. John died from heart disease and alcohol abuse … according to a report from the L.A. coroner’s office.

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. The disease makes it difficult for the heart to pump blood and often goes undiagnosed.

As for the “accidental” label — that’s because St. John was apparently on an alcohol binge at the time of his death.

News broke last month that 52-year-old St. John was found dead at his home in 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 pronounced him dead on the scene.

Another source that was close to St. John’s states the actor checked himself into UCLA Medical Center in January for depression issues, and he had just been released a few days before his death. Reports also states that St. John’s depression was partially linked to his son, Julian’s suicide in 2014. It also seems to be the likely trigger for St. John’s heavy drinking at the time of his death.

As you know, around the 3-year anniversary of Julian’s suicide in 2017, St. John’s allegedly threatened to take his own life with a gun … and cops placed him under a 72-hour hold for psychiatric evaluation.

St. John had played Neil Winters on ‘The Young & the Restless’ since 1991 — earning 9 Daytime Emmy Award nominations for the role. He also won 10 NAACP Image Awards.

Black Teenager Attacked by Corrections Deputy in Florida, Investigation Underway

Published

on

A Florida corrections deputy has been placed on leave after going on the attack against a 17-year-old at a juvenile center … and it’s all on video.

The teenager, Terrance Devon Reed III, was taken to the hospital after the violent altercation with Sarasota County Deputy Neil Pizzo last week. The surveillance footage shows Reed sitting on a bench with his arms tucked in his shirt when Pizzo marches toward him.

As Reed stands up and takes his arms out, the deputy immediately goes for his throat. A struggle ensues before Pizzo throws Reed to the ground, but at no point does the teenager appear to fight back.

Another deputy jumps in to try to wrangle Reed’s feet, and that’s when Pizzo strikes the teen on the back of the head multiple times. Reed’s then cuffed and helped to his feet … but not before suffering abrasions to his head.

The altercation reportedly began after Reed — who was previously arrested and charged with contempt of court, probation violations and cocaine possession — became uncooperative in a police lineup.

That, of course, doesn’t justify the violence by the deputy, and Sheriff Tom Knight says he’s disappointed in what he saw and Pizzo’s failure to de-escalate the situation.

Knight says he placed the deputy on administrative duty while an internal investigation is conducted.

Published

on

Tamar Braxton boyfriend is running to court asking for protection against her in what he describes as a domestic violence situation.

The singer’s BF, David Adefeso, filed for a restraining order Tuesday in L.A. seeking to prevent Domestic Violence and he’s asking a judge to grant him one against Tamar. For now, it’s unclear what he’s alleging she might’ve done.

It doesn’t look like the court has approved his request just yet  

At any rate, it’s another sign that things have been volatile lately in her life — especially as it pertains to David. Remember, he’s the one who called 911 not too long ago saying Tamar was threatening to kill herself. He also mentioned her WeTV beef to cops at the time.

Also keep in mind … family sources connected to Tamar have told us they believe she’s changed since getting with him — claiming her mood seems to align with his. We’ve also been told that David has come off as controlling in Tamar’s reality show, and that he’s been quite involved in her business decisions of late.

This continues to be a developing story…..

The bodies of a missing US couple have been found at the bottom of a well in Mexico.

Ian Hirschsohn, 78 and his 73-year-old wife Kathy Harvey had been missing since August 31, when they were supposed to return home to San Diego from a trip across the border.

Their abandoned car was found in Ensenada, just 90 minutes from the US border, last week.

Investigators then made the grim discovery on Thursday in an unpopulated area just south of the tourist hotspot.

The bodies were recovered over the weekend; San Diego police confirmed their identities, CBS8 reported.

Family members said the couple had been staying at a rented house in El Socorrito, about 200 miles south of the border, a town they frequented over the past 35 years.

Kathy texted her son Robert on August 28 to say they were going to either explore a gold mine or visit a beach; however the family lost contact with them on August 31.

After reporting them missing, the Consulate General in Tijuana finally informed the family the couple’s Toyota Land Cruiser had been found in Ensenada.

“She was really enjoying retirement and had multiple groups of friends,” Robert told the site. “She loved walking and traveling.  She had a huge bucket list of where she wanted to go.”

An investigation is now underway. The cause of deaths has not been revealed, nor has a motive, but investigators suspect foul play.
