Kristoff St. John’s oldest daughter is working to take over her father’s estate after his untimely death. She has filed court documents asking to be named administrator over the Young and the Restless star’s assets.
Paris St. John is the daughter Kristoff shared with ex-wife Mia. The beloved soap star reportedly died without a will, and his daughter is first in line to inherit her dad’s holdings. She petitioned a Los Angeles courtroom asking to become the overseer of his estate, The Blast reports.
Paris notes that Kristoff’s net value is estimated at $122,000, according to the outlet.
The beloved Young and the Restless actor died from heart disease, and the effects of an accidental alcohol overdose, KCAL reports.
The official cause of death reported by the L.A. coroner’s office is hypertrophic heart disease and “effects of ethanol” and is classified as accidental. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “about 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year–that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women.”
“According to the available information, the decedent is a 52-year-old black male who was found dead in his residence. He has a history of alcohol abuse, bipolar disorder and suicidal ideations,” Kristoff’s coroner’s report states.
“He was released from a mental health hospital on 02/01/2019 following a 72-hour hold. No suicide note was found,” the report continues. “No trauma is noted and no foul play is suspected in this case.”
The report also says in the “informant/witness statements” section: “The decedent had been admitted to Las Encinas Mental Health Hospital in Pasadena on 01/26/2019 for threatening to hurt himself and alcohol abuse. The decedent was released on 02/01/2019 and went to his residence.”
Last month, the soap opera star was found dead at age 52. Law enforcement sources told TMZ one of Kristoff’s friends went to check on him at the actor’s home in San Fernando Valley and found his body. Police and paramedics were alerted and responded to the house. Kristoff was reportedly pronounced dead on the scene.
