In the middle of an 85-page declaration filed Tuesday is an explosive accusation from the sister of Monica Beresford-Redman murdered in Mexico, RadarOnline.com has learned. The documents contain allegations that Monica was worried her husband Survivor producer Bruce Beresford-Redman and father-in-law were “plotting something.”.
In her declaration, Carla Burgos states, “A few months before Monica left for Cancun, she told me that she was worried that Bruce (Monica’s husband) and his father David were ‘plotting something.’ “
The documents were filed as part of a custody battle taking place in Los Angeles court between the Burgos family and the Beresford-Redman’s. Bruce’s parents, David and Juanita Beresford-Redman, have been granted temporary custody of Bruce and Monica’s children: 3-year-old Alec and 5-year-old Camila.
Carla is disputing that Monica updated her will in 2008 to exclude her and her sister Jeane from having custody over the children. Carla states “She (Monica) took boxes of what she considered to be all of her important documents and gave them to Jeane for safekeeping.” Carla said the box included Monica’s will dated 2004, not the will that Bruce provided the court.
Carla says the night before Monica left for her vacation in Cancun, “Bruce came to my house and began pounding on the door. He was in a rage. First, he asked my son Nicolas, ‘Where are the boxes?’ Apparently, Monica had told him that the boxes were at my house. Nicolas asked him ‘What boxes?’ I told Bruce that Monica took them. He became very angry and said, ‘No, she didn’t. ‘ He then turned around and slammed the door as he left. I had never seen Bruce so out of control since I have known him.”
Carla also alleges that the will provided by Bruce has a signature that “does not look like Monica’s.”
Carla and Monica would speak “several times a day nearly every day,” she states, “and told each other everything.”
Carla alleges “when Monica found out that Bruce was having an affair, Monica forwarded all of the emails that she exchanged with Bruce and with his mistress, Joy. She asked my opinion about the situation, and we had long discussions about whether or not her marriage could be saved.”
Carla revealed that Monica was thinking of getting a divorce and moving out of the house. “She talked about getting a condominium in Santa Monica so the children could be by the beach,” she states.
In Bruce’s declaration—taken while he was in Mexico—he states that it is his wish that Camila and Alec remain in the custody of his parents.
The guardianship hearing takes place Thursday at 10:30 a.m.
