Three years after she was brutally murdered and tossed in a hotel sewer in Mexico, the Brazilian restaurant in Los Angeles that was Monica Beresford-Redman’s pride and joy — and was keeping her memory alive for her family — closed in January 2013.
Monica, who was allegedly killed by her Survivor producer husband in April 2010 while they were vacationing in Cancun, opened the festive restaurant Zabumba years before her death, which became a neighborhood favorite for dancing, food and drink.
The space is currently plastered with “for lease” signs as seen in Radar’s exclusive photos and the restaurant’s phone line is completely disconnected.
In February 2012, Bruce, who was extradited back to Mexico in 2011, spoke out from his jail cell to CBS’ 48 Hours and declared his innocence.
“This is the first time I’ve chosen to speak,” he pleaded. “Everyone seems to have decided that I killed my wife. I didn’t kill my wife, I really didn’t.”
