Mr. John, 28, had struggled with depression for several years, said his sister, Tamara Mannelly. He died as the result of a seizure and heart failure because of an overdose of prescription drugs, she said.

He was taken from Mannelly's home in Libertyville, where he also lived, to NorthShore University HealthSystem Skokie Hospital. An autopsy is pending, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
