In general theory, when a spirit departs the body, it is thought the spirit retains its basic personality, which is unique. In the event of a suicide, there may be many after-thoughts, all speculation by us. "Deep regrets of my actions. / I'm okay / I wish I could tell you ______. / Sorry to have left you like this with the guilt. etc." So, there could be "unfinished business", also a general theory. Logical thinking, the site of the suicide, etc., would be a place friends/relatives would visit, and where, hopefully the message could be delivered.
We hear similar testimony from the living about places not only of suicide, but trauma, murders, or even natural death. As far as the spirit visiting other locations, personally, I think it's quite possible. In the hours following death, there have been reported instances of the death apparition appearing to relatives, during the same night, in many locations, hundreds if not thousands of miles apart.
Again, personally, I don't think that there is a binding force, of light or darkness, that "binds" the spirit to a given death site. There are also too many case studies of "message delivered" / "mission accomplished" where the site suddenly becomes "cleared", and the activity ceases. I believe it's choice. We believe we have freedom of choice, and I generally follow that theory even when the choice seems difficult, but we also need to face the fact, that we are often our own harshest task master, and perhaps at our harshest, when we feel we have failed.
Ok, that makes sense to me. I can agree with your thoughts about the death apparition, at my fathers funeral as I was giving the Eulogy, my sister said she was watching a white orb float above my fathers casket, wish she would have told me.

RE: Spirit attachment to a location. From some personal observations and thinking, I would add another aspect of "attachment" that is not THE answer, but could be part of the general package. I have noticed this in myself, and others as they approach older age. (I'm 60 as I write this, and have until July of next year to hold that distinction. And I would add this as a generality, not a universal phenomenon.
When I was younger, I enjoyed travel, visiting new places, even if only to say, "been there". It was an adventure, most coveted and enjoyed. And, I never stayed anywhere, in any place very long. Constantly on the go. At first, I only dropped the mental desire for distant travel, then general/regional travel. I would go, if necessary, but the personal push to do so wasn't there any more. It was simply a necessity, but not a real joy any more. As I aged, I noticed my world shrank. I'm not lazy, nor known to procrastinate. Now, at 7:00 PM, unless called out to work or other REAL reason, I tend not to want to go to Wal-Mart, grocery store, or casual trip across town. I will, but the desire, have to do it, is not really there. I notice that others, as they age, also become more of what we call "home-bodies". Perhaps clinging to home is a natural part of the aging process. Our last fortess. So, if we say a spirit is clinging to a particular home, or spot, are they really?? May we not speculate, based on what we can see in others that are aging, that perhaps the attachment may have actually been formed prior to bodily death?? The spirit might be simply following a natural progression to a centralization that is a basic part of human nature, at least for some, and the aging process?
