The Young and the Restless star Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) and his ex-wife Mia are in the news again regarding the tragic events of the death of their son Julian back in November of 2014. According to TMZ, St. John is suing the facility where his son committed suicide – La Casa Psychiatric Health Facility in Long Beach, CA -for giving Julian access to the plastic bag he used to kill himself.
One of the key reasons St. John is filing the suit is that the actor claims that Julian did the exact same thing less than 3 weeks before his death when he attempted to asphyxiate himself with a trash bag from his room. In the wrongful death suit, Kristoff says after that failed attempt the hospital never removed the trash bags from his room.
Even more upsetting is Kristoff revealed in his claim: that there is evidence of the nurses falsifying records and that Julian was supposed to be checked on every 15 minutes because he was a high suicide risk, but records show reveal that checks never happened on time.
Kristoff feels the hospital was completely negligent and stated that had the staff acted with even the slighted regard for Julian’s safety, “he would still be alive today.”
