Survivor Producer Wants His Extradition Reversed

For over two years, Bruce Beresford-Redman has been sitting in a Cancun jail awaiting trial for the murder of his wife. Redman was extradited from the United States after he managed to sneak across the border into the US shortly after he was accused of killing his wife. This was such huge news back in the day when it happened and his wife's entire family thinks he killed her. Nothing has changed their minds about that. They spoke just two months ago about how they wanted to see Redman face the trail that seemingly will never happen.

Now, according to Radar, Redman has filed a motion to have his extradition reversed. In his motion he says there is no evidence linking him to the death and the claims made by Mexico regarding evidence and witnesses they have to support his conviction in the trial have either been lost or don't exist in the first place.

"The Mexican government claimed to possess forensic evidence that would prove Beresford-Redman’s guilt: conveniently all this alleged evidence was lost/destroyed while in Mexican custody. The Mexican government claimed to have witnesses who heard a fight and screams from the hotel room: but again when asked to produce those witnesses the Mexican government could not.·      The Mexican government claimed to have blood evidence from the crime scene: however there was no blood ever found of Beresford-Redman or his wife. The Mexican government claimed to have a hotel staff member witness a physical fight between Beresford-Redman and his wife: but when this staff member was asked to identity Beresford-Redman or his wife, he could not."

Even if I believe the guy didn't kill his wife, which I don't, he is in Mexican custody. They fought to get him extradited after he illegally crossed the border back to the US, so I doubt they are going to let him just go back to the US even if the judge rules in Redman's favor. I don't ever want anyone to go to jail for a crime they didn't commit but he did some crazy things right before they went on this vacation and her family is convinced he did it because of the actions he took before the vacation and just in their marriage. If, what he says is true, then I would hope that during his trial he would be found not guilty. I do think it is strange that he has been locked up for over two years with no trial and that needs to change. The judge in the case will be watched during the trial and if anything shady or sketchy happens then he can make the argument that eh should be freed.

Trails should always happen.

Mexican jails are no bueno.

Good luck, dude. You're going to need it.

What were the strange actions he took before the vacation?

money talks

Cops dropped the ball.
They should have witnesses, evidence etc.
I think he's guilty as sin but I think because some folks didn't care to cross the t's or dot the i's, he's going to walk.

So now 3 years is "back in the day?"

Renoblondee said...

Did he take out a huge life insurance on her before?

nancer said...

Bruce Beresford-Redman

I know this POS's name, what was his wife's name? Anyone?

FSP said...

@disco- just like Old Hollywood!

aemish said...

That's what I was thinking too, @Nancer! Speedy trial my eye ppsh

Bacon Ranch said...

That was the Bermuda guy (or Bahamas?) I think, Reno.
This fella seemed to know her for more than a month.

aemish said...

@Vera.. was reading on Wiki and saw there it's Monica

I have no idea whether or not he's guilty, but the Mexican police are worse than incompetent.

There are a number of cases where Canadians died in Mexico under suspicious circumstances (fell off balcony, died in a bar fight, found by the side of the road, flat-out executions), and in every case, the police kept changing their story.

Something in the milk ain't clean here.

Money talks, bullshit walks. This guy is gonna walk. He has the $ money to buy off the right people. Mexico is just as corrupt as America. They just take that shit as business as usual! America likes to think this stuff doesn't happen and we act all shocked when it comes to light!

Mexico is MUCH MORE corrupt than the US. Corruption is the worst problem in Mexico, period.

Ana Maria said...

...I agree that our police force is corrupt and incompetent, but that doesn't change my impression that he did it and that he thought he could get away with it here in Mexico...

GatorGirl said...

I think I remember something about an affair and she was telling her family she was leaving him and he insisted on this vacation

Anna Belle said...

He's slimmy & all signs point to him...don't know if he'll get convicted of anything or go to another country & hide out

Also think he's guilty. Wonder if they bring him hookers in jail. He's bought his way out. I think he will be released and return to the states. Feel bad her family has to go through this. There will be no justice. Must be awful.

Jazzy said...

This was one of my favorite Dateline episodes. He definitely did it and those kids need to be raised by her sister, which was her wish if anything happened to her. The grandparents are too old to raise them alone and his dad is crazy.

Count Jerkula said...

I don't know the details, but if he is guilty, I hope he gets disemboweled alive in jail, like a pedo I read about recently, maybe in England.

Meli said...

The fact that he's still alive after two years in a Mexican prison is miraculous. Dude, count your blessings, keep your head down, and buy your way out.

NYer said...

at least he's not in guantanamo; those people have been there for more than 12 years without a trial or even being charged.

Principessa Marina said...

Even if he's guilty, and I don't know, everybody deserves a fair trial. Heck, everybody deserves a trial period.

You'd think if he was planning to kill his wife he'd consider the laws in Mexico and how it would suck to be jailed and prosecuted there. Or did he not think he'd get caught? Or - if he did kill her - was it unplanned?

Lady Heisenberg said...

They had to move Ian Watkins around a lot; I doubt he will make it out of there alive @count. There have been a lot of threats against Ian that specifically include the hot-water-and-sugar (aka prison style napalm)

When you hear his parents interviewed you understand why he has such a superior attitude, and why he feels he shouldn't be convicted for murdering a woman who wanted to leave him because he was a liar and cheat. This was all about money and and child custody. He truly believes he did nothing wrong killing her in front of his children and throwing her into a sewer, and he was raised by people who think they are just so much better than everyone else. Those kids need to be with their aunts, their poor dead mother's sisters, not his horrible parents, and certainly not him. Even his fuck buddy girlfriend thinks he killed the wife. The sewer was a clever way to screw up the forensics but there were plenty of scratches all over him and people heard the fight going on while he strangled his wife to death, and they called security, not to mention the door is electronic and showed him leaving several times all the way up to 4:30 a.m. in and out all night long getting rid of evidence and then lying to security about her going shopping alone in town without the kids. Leave him in a Mexican prison to rot, which is still to good for him.
