Many players have reported seeing his ghost in the Vercetti Estate. Players have reported to have heard windy voices and strange whistles all over the mansion. It is believed to be the ghost of Ricardo Diaz since he was murdered in his mansion.

His ghost is believed to roam around the mansion at late hours. He was of cunning nature when he was alive, so it is possible for the ghost to get hostile at times.

Possible Poltergeist

The ghost could also be a poltergeist. Similar to poltergeist activities, players have reported that his ghost is the one behind changing the portraits from their initial positions.

False Mods

These mods have further made the myth more complicated, as many players are believed to have used this mod and similar ones to try to trick others into thinking their findings are genuine.
