Kristoff St. John, who played Neil Winters in "The Young and the Restless," was reportedly found dead by a friend who went to check on him on Sunday. He was 52. Inside Edition spent time with St. John on the set of “The Young and the Restless” in 2016. He’d worked on the show for 27 years and won two Daytime Emmys for his role. But the last couple of years were filled with grief. His son Julian, who battled mental illness, took his life in 2014.
