Robin created a flyer and shared it on social media asking for help locating Miranda. She even offered a $1,000 reward for any information leading to her daughter.
Sadly, on October 12th, Miranda was found dead in the woods near J. Julian Lane.
It was a little after 7 in the morning that day when officers from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department got a call to come out to the 4200 block of Statesville Avenue.
“Upon arrival, officers were directed to a wooded area in the 1800 block of J. Julian Lane, which is in the Freedom Division,” the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said in a statement.
“After responding to that location, officers located the body of a female who was pronounced deceased. The victim has been identified as Miranda Springs, DOB: 01/28/1991.”
Miranda’s death was determined to be a homicide, and evidence led authorities to a man named Saafiq Jahquiel Hall. The same day that Miranda was found, Saafiq was arrested and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, first-degree kidnapping, and murder.

“My heart cries out for you every hour, every minute, every second……,” Robin heartbreakingly wrote after Miranda was found dead. “I feel like I’m going to die. EVIL WALKS AMONGST US.”
