‘Survivor’ producer imprisoned for wife’s death in Mexico is released, returns to California
A former reality-TV show producer convicted of killing his wife is back home in Southern California after his release from a Mexican prison.
KTLA-TV says former “Survivor” producer Bruce Beresford-Redman was released about two months ago. The station says the 48-year-old had no comment when interviewed Monday at his home in Gardena, where he is living with his mother and two children.
He served 7½ years of a 12-year sentence.
Beresford-Redman was convicted of beating and strangling his wife, 42-year-old Monica Beresford-Redman, in 2010. Her naked body was found in a sewer cistern at a Cancun-area resort where the family was vacationing.
Beresford-Redman maintained his innocence.
His former attorney, Jaime Cancino, tells KNBC-TV that prisoners in Mexico are eligible for release after serving 60% of their sentences.
A former “Survivor” producer’s sentence of 12 years in a Mexican prison in connection with the 2010 death of his wife is not enough, a Mexican prosecutor said.
