Former Survivor Producer Bruce Beresford-Redman Ordered Back To Mexico

New information regarding former Survivor producer Bruce Beresford-Redman has finally surfaced. The ex Survivor producer is being ordered back to Mexico where he’ll face a charge of killing his wife Monica Beresford-Redman back in April of 2010. Read on to find out why it could take a year to get this guy back to Mexico…

Bruce Beresford-Redman has been cooling his heels in jail on a “fugitive warrant arrest” that Mexican authorities issued after charging the former Survivor producer with aggravated homicide of his wife Monica Beresford-Redman in Cancun. Now it looks like a judge has ordered Bruce back to Mexico.

Despite his attorney’s claims their client is innocent, the ruling went down in Los Angeles on Tuesday by U.S. Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Chooljian. Last November Richard Hirsh said of his client’s innocence, “There were two other homicides in that same hotel, so we think police should have looked for other suspects before they arrested our client.”

Regardless of what Bruce Beresford-Redmen’s attorneys thought, Judge Chooljian deemed the extradition ruling fair due to probable cause he killed his wife and should stand trial in Cancun.

It’s actually kind of a sad case when you look at the case from the very beginning. Monica Beresford-Redman’s was found in a Cancun hotel’s sewer. Mexican authorities claimed “asphyxiation by suffocation” as the cause of death. It would later come out that hotel guests allegedly heard “screams” and other loud noises coming from the Beresford-Redman’s hotel room.

After a long process of fighting for the extradition back to Mexico and facing all kinds of evidence such as supposed life insurance claims that were taken out on Monica and quarrels between the couple up until their Cancun trip, this is a win for Monica and her family.

Unfortunately the process of getting Bruce Beresford-Redman back to Mexico could take up to a year. Why, you ask? He has right to pursue all his U.S. appeals which would delay the extradition process. There’s always a catch.
