Excellent question and I can offer you a firm, definite 'it depends' as an answer. In this field, as fascinating as it is, there are very few empirical answers, there are many variables and many exceptions.
Lets use the analogy of death in battle, large scale death, high emotions<determination, terror, adrenaline>its almost a textbook notion for a residual haunting*a true ghost event*if you have a viable source of natural energy or a natural/manmade element in the immediate environment.
As I was saying, it depends on a number of possible factors,
many of which we have no way of knowing since we cannot guess what was in the person's mind at the time.
Not realizing he/she died, in short they think they had only a close call rather than actually dying.
Will...especially in battle, either the determination to hold an area or the will to take it no matter what.
Bond to a living loved one.
Negative emotions, rage, denial
There are exceptions, to this and I suspect the person's personal spirituality has a great deal to do with it. As an example, a close friend of mine died in a car crash early this year, Billie had 2 kids under 11, one of whom was in the car with her but survived, but Billie crossed over a few hours after her body expired
Hope that helps a bit,

since there are no clear cut, definitive answers, at least on this side of the Veil ;D
