The Star: Brooklyn-born mobster Bugsy Siegel played a key role in the development of the extravagant Flamingo Hotel—allegedly Siegel’s attempt to finally make an honest living. But he spent far beyond his means, angering many of his investors. Soon after the casino’s anticlimactic opening, he was shot to death in his girlfriend’s Beverly Hills home.

The Haunting: Perhaps Siegel haunts the Flamingo because he never had the opportunity to see it flourish, or because the debt it brought upon him was a factor in his demise. Visitors to the hotel have reported a ghostly figure wandering around the garden, where there’s a Bugsy memorial.
