Biography:
Jonesy had a very normal childhood. Grew up in a middle class home, got good grades, and played sports with the local kids. How ever he developed a bad case of OCD around the age of twelve. Jonesy would go out of his way to keep from touching people and he washed his hands at least eight times a day at the least. He was also quite dead set on trying to wash the brown tint out of his blond hair because with his parent’s dyed platinum blond hair, he always thought that his own hair color was dirt. These problems were never treated.

This escalated to the point where he had to move out of the house when he was seventeen because no one he lived with could handle how clean and sterile he wanted his house to be. Around this time his OCD developed into automysophobia.

At the age of eighteen Jonesy left his house in order to pick up cold medicin because a recent drug but in his town that was converting over-the-counter cold medicine into drugs so he could no longer have it delivered right to his house. He was abducted right there in the parking lot and sexually abused. From that point forward Jonesy developed full on agoraphobia and would not even step foot out of his house for the next eight years.

Now his past time can be seen as spending up to nine hours a day trying to scrub dirt and grim off his body that is not actually there.

None of these mental problems were discovered until Jonesy started falling into debt. When his inheritance ran out at the age of twenty five his bills started stacking up untill his house went into foreclosure. When the authorities came to remove Jonesy from his home he was found sitting in his bath tub scrubbing his arms untill they bled.
