Bruce Beresford-Redman is no longer merely a suspect in the murder of his wife. The television producer has finally been arrested for this heinous crime.
Beresford-Redman - who was detained in April after wife Monica turned up dead in Mexico, near where the couple had been vacationing - was arrested in his home outside Los Angeles yesterday. He's in federal custody and, according to documents obtained by TMZ, will be extradited to Mexico.
The tragic murder of Monica Beresford-Redman has made for tabloid fodder for months now.
Monica's body was found in a sewer at the Moon Palace resort in Cancun earlier this year. It later came out that Bruce had been having an affair, and authorities have spent the time since building a case against the former producer of Survivor.An arrest was made yesterday because Mexican police now believe they have compiled enough evidence against the alleged murderer. This includes:
- Email confirmation of Bruce's infidelity.
- Forensic experts finding blood stains on a pillar in the hotel room Bruce and Monica shared, as well as on the sheets and on a railing.
- Two teenagers in the room below Bruce's who are on record as saying they were awakened by "screams, crying for help and extremely loud banging from the room above... it sounded like a woman in extreme distress."
- Marks found by authorities on Bruce's hands, behind his ear, on his left shin and on his right ankle shortly after his wife went missing.
Beresford-Redman will appear in a federal courtroom in Los Angeles today.
