As the main suspect in his wife’s 2010 murder, former “Survivor” producer, Bruce Beresford-Redman, has not spoken publically about the death until now. In his first and only television interview since he has been jailed for more than a year, Beresford-Redman insisted that he didn’t killed his wife.
"Everyone seems to have decided that I killed my wife," he told “48 Hours Mystery” in an episode airing Saturday. "I didn't kill my wife – I really didn't."
The former Emmy-nominated “Survivor” producer was the prime suspect in his wife Monica's April 2010 murder. He is currently facing jail time in an isolated Mexican jail.
"For anyone who really believes … that you're innocent until you're proven guilty, please take a look at the evidence," says Beresford-Redman. "Or in this case, the absolute complete lack of evidence."
Former reality series producer Bruce Beresford-Redman was accused of killing his 42-year-old wife, Monica, after her naked and beaten body was found in a sewer at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun, where the couple was vacationing with their two young children.
Talking to “48 Hours Mystery” in an interview, Beresford-Redman recalled his wife as the love of his life. "She was as lovely a person inside as she was beautiful on the outside. And in all the accusations and all the discussion and everything, I think very few people have said anything about her, about what my children have lost, what I have lost," he said. "She was amazing."
Bruce and Monica tied the knot in 1999, and had two children: Camila, now 7, and Alec, now 5.
The former top reality show producer added that even if he is proven innocent, there is no happy ending to the tragic death of his wife. "This is not CSI or Law & Order or any of those shows where at the end we have a satisfying resolution," he said. "I doubt that there will ever be a satisfying resolution for this because the evidence is gone. Even if I do manage to get off, I don't know if Monica's killers will ever really be caught."
Bruce Beresford-Redman knows that he is caught in a real-life murder mystery. "Am I a survivor or not? I think very much remains to be seen," he said.
"Fatal Episode: The Producer's Story," reported by "48 Hours Mystery" correspondent Troy Roberts, will air Saturday, Feb. 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
