A former producer on the reality series “Survivor” who has been doing time for murdering his wife was released early from prison. TMZ reports that Bruce Beresford-Redman was released from a Mexican prison four years into his 12-year sentence.
“Beresford-Redman was released two months ago from the Quintana Roo jail in Mexico, and is reportedly already back home in his Southern California home. He was found guilty of murdering his wife, Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman, while they were on a 2010 vacation with their kids in Cancun,” TMZ reports, adding: “Monica’s body was discovered in a sewer, and authorities found she’d died by suffocation and had suffered bruising on her face and head. Beresford-Redman had gone home to California, but was eventually extradited to Mexico in 2012, and convicted for Monica’s murder in 2015.”
Beresford-Redman’s attorney reportedly told KNBC-TV that Mexican prisoners are eligible for release after they complete 60 percent of their sentence.
“It appears Beresford-Redman was given credit for time served before his conviction — which amounts to 7 and a half years,” TMZ notes.
In addition to the CBS staple “Survivor,” Beresford-Redman’s production credits include “Pimp My Ride,” “The Contender,” “The Restaurant” and “Breakthrough with Tony Robbins.”
