Former Survivor Producer Arrested For Wife's Mexico Death

survivor producer accused of killing wife in mexico

We first heard about this back in June, but now it looks like it's getting real for former Survivor producer Bruce Beresford-Redman.

The former Survivor producer was finally arrested in Los Angeles yesterday on a warrant from Mexico.

The warrant accused the former producer of killing his wife, Monica Beresford-Redman "by asphyxiating her" while he was in Cancun, Mexico on April 5.

Here's what Beresford-Redman's lawyer Richard Hirsch had to say about the arrest:

"Based upon our investigation, he is an innocent man being wrongfully accused by a foreign government. We hope that after full consideration of both sides, a federal court will decide not to extradite him."

Looks like Bruce, his wife, and their two children were staying at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun, and Monica's body was found in a resort sewer on April 8.

SO upsetting.

According to the extradition request, there were several witness statements, which include 2 British teens who were in the hotel room below Beresford-Redman's.

The teens said they were awakened by "screams, crying for help and extremely loud banging from the room above" and "It sounded like a woman in extreme distress."

Here's more from the extradition request:

[the couple] "had been having marital troubles for some time before her murder. The marital problems continued in Cancun. In a conversation from Cancun on April 4, 2010, Monica Burgos told her sister, Ferreira Burgos, that she had found evidence that [Beresford-Redman] was still in contact with the woman with whom he was having the affair."

Fortunately, Beresford-Redman's children are currently in his parents' custody as all of this is sorted out.

Sounds VERY suspect to us.

We'll see what happens, but we're def leaning towards guilty on this one.

Do U think the former Survivor producer is guilty?

Survivor Producer Released, Still Under Investigation.

Yesterday we were horrified and saddened to discover that Survivor producer Bruce Bresford-Redman's wife, Monica, was found dead in a sewer at the Cancun resort where the couple were vacationing, and police arrested the 38 year old after uncovering some seriously shady evidence that left him looking very guilty!

Quintana Roo state investigator Veronica Acacio announced today that Beresford-Redman has been released from jail, but will not be allowed to leave the country because he's still under criminal investigation.

Attorney General Francisco Alor has also released details on the state of Monica's body, which apparently displays signs of asphyxiation and a blow to the right temple.

Combine that with her husband's alleged affair, their reported arguing Sunday, the scratches on his arm, and the two days unaccounted for in between Monica's last sighting and him finally reporting her missing…we obviously won't jump to conclusions, but we think everyone can agree that things do not look good!

So tragic. Our thoughts our with Monica's family and friends during this difficult time.
