Three weeks ago, Josh Steen watched his close friend Ronnie McNutt kill himself live on Facebook. Not long after that, Ronnie McNutt appeared in the mind of his friend and roommate Josh Steen as if he was still alive. Now he was lost in a junkyard until a man named Tony came along and saved him.
The two men are now living together, but soon Josh will have to leave the mysterious junkyard where they found the old farmhouse and go back to his wife and daughter.
Josh Steen has been writing every day in a personal journal because his friend Ronnie McNutt is telling him a story about their lives. “It’s a really great story,” Josh says.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back to normal,” he adds. “It’s been amazing, it’s the best vacation I ever had.”
And now that Tommy is starting the process of putting some new memories into everyone at the junkyard, Josh will be waiting for the old memories to come back.

The story of Ronnie McNutt appeared on the Internet in 1996 and gained a lot of attention. In the story, Ronnie disappeared at night when his girlfriend was murdered in his house by a man named Tony. The next day everyone thought that Ronnie had been killed, but it was decided that he was just missing and then later found alive. It soon became a mystery which had many people wondering where Ronnie went from there. The story then faded away and was not heard until Josh Steen was writing his journal.
