I'll see if something occurs to me or if someone suggests something.
Both the Aztecs and the Greeks give us undead to be/serve the Cold Ones. I book I referred to before made the case that the Nymphs of Greek myth were originally the spirits of young women who died unwed. In archaic Greek terms, they hadn't fulfilled the purpose of their lives. A typical condition for becoming a ghost.

In Aztec lore women who died in childbirth became Cihuateteo deadly malevolent beings. Like the nymphs, beautiful and mystically powerful. La Llorna could be a Cold One assassin working for Santa Muerte.

Following this link should help you with the Cold Ones in Latin America.
