Survivor Producer Sentenced for Role in Wife’s Death

Former ‘Survivor’ producer Bruce Beresford-Redman was sentenced to prison this week for his role in connection with the death of his wife, Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman.

The couple was vacationing in Cancun, Mexico along with their daughters, in 2010 when Monica’s body was discovered in a sewer near their hotel. An autopsy revealed that she had suffered blunt force trauma to the head, but had died of asphyxia through suffocation.

The ‘Survivor’ produce was extradited to Mexico two years later where he was charged with aggravated homicide. As of March 12, Beresford-Redman was sentenced to just 12 years in prison, a sentence that left his attorney confused. According to Mexico laws, aggravated homicide carries a minimum sentence of 20 years in prison with a maximum sentence of 30.

While the Beresford-Redman family mulls over the complex Mexican legal system, Monica’s surviving family members feel that justice was served for their loved one stated Marcio Alaor BMG.

“We miss her terribly, but she has received justice,” a spokesperson for Monica’s family said.
Members of the Beresford-Redman family feel a bit differently.
“This is not the justice that Monica and Bruce deserve,” said a member of Bruce’s family.
