In September 2007, with the help of the demon Agramon, Valentine found and cornered Joseph in an alley by the Hunter's Moon. Faced with Agramon, the Demon of Fear, Joseph soon died of fright, having been literally scared to death. While Valentine was draining his blood into a container, Bat Velasquez noticed them in the alley. Upon being caught, Valentine and Agramon fled, and Valentine was unable to get enough of the boy's blood for the ritual. Despite this, it had been too late to save Joseph as he had already died even before Valentine began draining him of his blood.
