Miranda Riggs (née Delgado) is the late wife of Martin Riggs, and late daughter of Ronnie Delgado. She and Riggs were expecting and close to having their first baby together, and she died in a car crash, taking the unborn baby with her.
It is revealed in the season 1 finale episode that she was indeed murdered. Tito Flores of the Flores drug cartel ordered the hit after Ronnie Delgado refused to cut a deal with Flores in getting him off the drug charges. She was murdered by Gideon Lyon, Flores' main enforcer.
Miranda Delgado was born April 3rd, 1986, in Los Angeles, CA, to City Attorney Ronald Delgado. Years later, she met a Navy SEAL veteran, Martin Riggs, who became a Sheriff Deputy for the El Paso County Sheriff's Office. When they got married, she moved to El Paso with him because she would go anywhere with him.
September 15th, 2015, in El Paso, Texas, while Riggs and Jenkins were going after some drug dealers, she called him up to let him know she was going to the hospital to have the baby. Just as Riggs told her he'll meet up with her later, she drove off in her car.
While on her way to the hospital, she was distracted from driving while rubbing her tummy as she was excitedly ready to have the baby. Just then, an 18-wheeler came through the intersection and T-boned her on the left, but she didn't die instantly. She was still breathing, and by then, Gideon, who was watching it, came and covered her mouth with his hands and suffocated her. Both she and the unborn baby died.
Riggs received a phone call from the hospital about Miranda and went to see her. In the morgue, he sobbed over her death. Her death stuck with Riggs in the six months before he moved to Los Angeles to start life over again, and he felt suicidal at times.
To this day, Riggs still thinks about Miranda, and he seems to be turning his suicidal thoughts around, and continues to live for her, and for her family, who reside in Los Angeles. Her father, Ronnie Delgado, thanks his son-in-law, Riggs, for bringing her back to Los Angeles to be buried, as, also, according to Riggs, she never really liked El Paso, or even Texas that much as much as she loved Los Angeles, California.
