As RadarOnline.com has learned, The TV star was freed from the Mexican prison two months ago, and is currently back home, in Southern California. He served seven and a half years despite being sentenced to 12 for the 2010 murder of wife Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman.
Bruce was extradited to Mexico in 2012 after being named a suspect in Monica’s murder case. The couple was on vacation in Cancun in 2010 when Monica suddenly disappeared. Police soon found her body in the sewer of the Moon Palace resort.
People staying in the bedroom below Monica and Bruce told authorities that they heard screaming and cries for help coming from above, hours before the woman’s lifeless body was found. Bruce said the screams came from a game they were playing.
Monica’s cause of death was asphyxia by suffocation. Authorities believe Bruce may have struck her in the head with a tube or bat before choking her and dumping her in the hotel sewer. The producer was convicted of killing his wife in 2015.
Despite the evidence, Bruce maintained his innocence throughout the entire investigation, telling 48 Hours Mystery in 2012 “Everyone seems to have decided that I killed my wife. I didn’t kill my wife — I really didn’t.”
The prosecutors, however, did not buy his story, and neither did Monica’s sisters, who said the couple had been having marital issues before the murder, as Monica believed Bruce was having an affair.
