The mansion's most famous and enduring mysteries are mostly related to ghosts of the victims of the shootouts that took place in the Vercetti Estate, namely Ricardo Diaz, Lance Vance, and Sonny Forelli. Sonny Forelli's ghost is the most debated myth out of the three, followed by Ricardo Diaz's ghost, which has various internet videos dedicated to investigating the myth. The existence of Ricardo Diaz's ghost has been developed into possible over the years but later debunked in standard fashion.
