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.
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?
