Divorce & violence in Cancun, Mexico: Did American Bruce Beresford-Redman kill wife Monica because she asked for divorce?
The Associated Press reports that former Survivor Producer Bruce Beresford-Redman may be extradited to California to face murder charges for his killing his wife Monica Beresford-Redman. Some say that his wife Monica wanted a divorce because her husband was cheating on her. The Mexican police are said to have damning evidence against the famed producer. Say Associated Press:
Prosecutors alleged Bruce Beresford-Redman killed his wife on April 5 at a swank resort in Cancun and later placed her in a sewer.
An autopsy found evidence that she had been punched in the face and asphyxiated, according to statements and reports released Monday.
In a statement to police, Bruce Beresford-Redman admitted arguing with his wife at the resort, but denied he was ever violent toward her.
After police noted scratches on his neck and hands, Bruce Beresford-Redman said that he and his family had taken several outdoor excursions on their vacation and the injuries were a result of climbing over rocks and diving into the water on the trips.
The filings also provide recollections from resort workers who had contact with the producer before Monica Beresford-Redman’s body was found on April 8.
One worker described seeing the couple in a heated argument outside a restaurant and that he thought Bruce Beresford-Redman would hit his wife, but realized he was being watched.
A concierge recounted taking a complaint from a British family that heard commotion in the room the couple shared with their young children. The woman told authorities she asked the producer about the incident, and he admitted arguing with his wife the night investigators think she was killed, but he told her “it won’t happen again.”
