Former ‘Survivor’ producer speaks out from Cancun prison
CANCUN — In his first interview since sentencing, and after six years behind bars in a Cancun prison, Bruce Beresford-Redman still proclaims innocence for the murder of his wife. Though a Mexican federal court found his 2015 conviction problematic, it may have little impact on his imprisonment, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Bruce Beresford-Redman has seen his share of defeats in the last few years. In an exclusive interview, his first since his sentencing in March 2015, the former Survivor producer — incarcerated for the murder of his wife in Mexico — describes the agony of not seeing his two children for years, the horror of prison conditions and now the disappointment of another unfavorable ruling from a Mexican court.
His children, Camila and Alec, are growing up without their father’s physical presence. Beresford-Redman’s aging parents, Juanita and David, are raising them, largely on their own. They haven’t seen each other in four and a half years. The absence from them is particularly difficult, he says.
“There is less of me and my soul every day,” says Beresford-Redman, who is serving a 12-year sentence for the 2010 murder of his wife, Monica Burgos, at a vacation resort in Cancun, a crime he maintains he did not commit.
“My parents are doing a great job with them, and they are both excelling in school and growing up,” he adds. “I’m enormously proud of them, they are remarkable. We miss each other, and as the years go by I am ever more heartbroken to be kept apart from them, but they are both doing well, which is perhaps the only consolation I can find in this whole stinking mess.”
