Miriam Gottlieb is a social services worker and was revealed to be a long time Red John accomplice in the season 5 finale 'Red John's Rules'. She took part in the kidnapping of a baby and helped Red John kill a woman named Eileen Barlow who had strong ties with Jane's past. Red John lets her take the baby as a gift for helping him.

Towards the end, when she is about to be arrested, she gives Jane an envelope, which is later revealed to be a CD, which shows Lorelei speaking for Red John. She says that Red John will kill her because she told Jane that they shook hands. She also tells Jane all of the 7 Red John suspects and that Red John will start killing again.
