San Francisco's first homicide of the year has a television past.
Joseph Minozzi's body was found on the corner of Sixth and Stevenson streets at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday.
He later died of stab wounds that he received to the torso.
The 30-year-old had recently moved to the Bay Area after being released from jail. He was here to try and change his life, according to some close to him.
Minozzi's drug trouble were documented in the tenth season of A&E’s show "Intervention," which involves friends and family confronting a loved one over their addiction problems.
The television show did not portray Minozzi in a positive light. But in San Francisco he was working as a window washer and was described as "a very good person."
Some people who reportedly knew Minnozi took to message boards to talk about their friends drug troubles and to share stories about happier times.
