In 1978, Jolene and her husband were walking by the cliffs overlooking the El Gordo Lighthouse. The couple have been known to be having troubles in their marriage. Jock wanted to leave Blaine County to pursue his dreams of becoming a stuntman. Jolene wanted to stay, saying that she had to look after her parents and run their thriving guest house. During the walk, Jock pushed Jolene off a cliff, killing her. The police concluded that Jolene fell off by accident, and Jock was released without charge.
Her spirit appears at the top of Mount Gordo at night, between 23:00 and 00:00. When the player approaches it, it disappears (although can always been seen through a sniper rifle scope). She has a permanent petrified open-mouthed look on her face, as well as leaves rotating around her. The only movement the spirit makes is a very slight bobbing in a circular motion. Moans can occasionally be heard from her. On the rock that the ghost floats over, the name "Jock" is written with blood, accusing her husband of murder. This serves as an Easter Egg.
This myth is believed to be related to another common story told within the Midwestern United States. In the tale, an unnamed girl was hiking with her friend on "Mount Gordon", which is located in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, when her boyfriend Mike murdered her. The story ends in different ways, from a pushing to a stabbing, but the death via pushing is where the connection happens. This is very likely, as Mount Gordo is Gordon without the N, and the girl's demise was awfully similar.
- The ghost doesn't have an actual in-game model, it is just a 2D texture, coded to appear and disappear.
- Jolene Cranley-Evans is the only ghost to appear in any Grand Theft Auto game.
