What was that thing Andy Warhol said? The victim in San Francisco's first homicide of the year, the stabbing we mentioned last week at the corner of 6th and Stevenson, turns out to have had a moment (or fifteen) on reality TV. 30-year-old Joseph Minozzi was found stabbed in the torso on January 12th around 2:30 a.m., and he died about an hour later at SF General. He had moved to the Bay Area from L.A., and had recently gotten a job as a high-rise window washer.
As the Examiner reports, Minozzi had appeared in a 2010 episode of A&E's Intervention in which his girlfriend at the time, 21-year-old Rachel Coccio, was the junkie subject. Minozzi was portrayed as her villainous boyfriend who was drug-addicted himself and tried to talk her out of going to rehab for her heroin and cocaine addictions. On the show he's shown imprisoned on a domestic abuse charge against Coccio, and we're told he later entered rehab himself. (See the promo of the "Rachel" episode here.)
