  • Johnny Truant Missing

    Hello, everyone. This is my first post here and I'm kind excited to be sharing this detail that I noticed when I first read the book. I have searched multiple forums and platforms and couldn't find anything regarding it, which surprised me. Anyways, at the end of Chapter 9 on page 151, The Editors attached an email from a girl who Johnny had an encounter with named Hailey. The email came after the first edition of the book was released and at the end of the email, Hailey mentions how Johnny had went missing: "I was sorry to hear he disappeared. Do you know what happened to him? -Hailey, February 13th, 1999."

    When I first read this passage, I absolutely lost it. Johnny Truant went missing after everything with The Navidson Record? Of course, this could have happened at any point before February 1999 but the fact that people are still asking about him by that time indicates that he may still have been evading the public eye.

    What are you guys' thoughts on this? Do you think people thought he "disappeared" simply because he went homeless, or do you think something more sinister is going on?
