Bruce Beresford-Redman has been released from the custody of Mexican authorities - but the former television producer is still considered the prime suspect in the recent death of his wife, Monica.
Last week, Monica's body was discovered in a sewer near the hotel where Bruce and her had been vacationing in Cancun. Witnesses had spotted the pair arguing a couple nights earlier, and Bruce was found with scratch marks on his neck.
Soon after thie grisly case came to light, Monica's sister (Carla Burgos) went on record with this bombshell: Bruce had been having an affair.
Now, Radar Online reports the identity of this mistress to be Joy Pierce.
Pictured: Bruce Beresford-Redman and his late wife, Monica. The former is a person of interest in the latter's death.
Pierce and Beresford-Redman first worked together in 2005 on The Contender. They also collaborated on a USA network show, titled Crash Course, last year. Their affair ended just months ago, sources told Radar.
“That’s why they went to Mexico - because she decided she wanted to try and reconcile the marriage and she believed he was done with the other woman,” Burgos said. “He told her, ‘I love you, I want to be with you.’ Monica really believed Bruce didn’t want to be with the other woman.”
Pierce has not been reached for comment.
