Bruce Beresford-Redman Arrested for Killing Wife

by at . Comments

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.

Who killed the nice lady who knows, but it does not look like a Mexican murder. naked and dumped in a sewer....really, more like American style..in Mexico they just dumped you on the outskirts of the city...this is a Latin woman who would not leave her kids alone...no wonder Bruce is in deep dodo!

Mistyeyez, I hate to rain on your gringo parade, but under the prisoner exchange treaty between Mexico and the United States, if he's convicted and sentenced to prison, he has the right to transfer to U.S. federal custody and do his time in the United States. Under the laws of Quintana Roo, he faces a sentence of anywhere from twelve to thirty years if convicted.

And both the kids got a lousy shirt that said "My Daddy Killed My Mommy In Mexico and all I got was this T-shirt" Now that the stooge has been arrested, let's get the kids back with Monica's family!!! This dude is the ULTIMATE douchbag; luckily he didn't kill himself before he was arrested so he will have a wonderful life in the Mexico prisons.... becoming someone's "special gringo" & eating the FABULOUS FOOD in Mexican prisons; along with making friends with the rats and drug cartel members!! Most people would have been smarter and shot themselves in the head before going to Mexico prison for murder.... but not this dude. Yah for me to watch this scumbag ROT in prison!! Get the kids back with MONICA's family!! Bruce's parents OBVIOUSLY didn't do a good job the first time!!!
