HistoryIn 1978, Jolene Cranley-Evans and her husband Jock Cranley 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. As a result, during the hike, Jock pushed Jolene off a cliff, and she later died from internal injuries due to her fall. The police concluded that Jolene fell off the cliff 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. 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.
- "Gordo" means fat or large in Spanish and Portuguese. This may be a reference to the mountain's large size.
- Gordo was also the name given to legendary boar the player must hunt and kill in Red Dead Redemption, another game by Rockstar Games.
