The Young and the Restless star Kristoff St. John’s cause of death has been revealed.

According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner, St. John died from hypertrophic heart disease. Reports showed signs of alcohol abuse, but his death was categorized as an accident. Investigators noted St. John’s heart muscle had “myocardial bridging,” according to The Blast.

News broke on February 3 that St. John was found dead in his home. The actor had been battling depression since the loss of his son, Julian, who committed suicide four years ago.

St. John was laid to rest next to Julian earlier this month. The soap opera star was 52-years-old.
