'Survivor' Suspect -- New Development with Kids

4/23/2010 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0409-survivorThe former "Survivor" producer -- Bruce Beresford-Redman -- suspected of killing his wife may now lose custody of his kids, because his parents have now made their move to get permanent guardianship ... TMZ has learned.

David and Juanita Beresford-Redman -- who now have temporary guardianship -- filed legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court asking to make them permanent guardians of the two children.  They say Bruce wants it that way.

David and Juanita -- who filed papers without a lawyer -- say they are retired and in good heath, they've had a relationship with Alec and Camilia since birth, and are "able to devote ourselves to the care and nurture of our grandchildren."

David and Juanita say, "We are both well-educated, each with a masters degree ... we will be able to address questions that arise from our grandchildren..."

Those questions will surely include the murder of their mother, Monica, in Mexico.  Bruce was detained but released and ordered to stay in the country pending the outcome of the investigation.

David and Juanita say their son is "assisting the Mexican authorities in matters concerning the murder."

What the "f" does having a Master's Degree mean? Nothing! It doesn't mean that they are good parents or grandparents. They raised their son to be a total douche & possible killer, right? I really hate when people use their "educational" level to try to prove they are better than everyone else. You're not!

OJ Simpson did it...and so did he ...........s***bag. And his parents think because they both have a Master degree that might soothe the pain of their mother gone because they will be able to answer their questions.



So Katherine Jackson doesn't qualify to raise her grandkids because she's 79/80 with no degree. WTH

Hopefully the mother's family (sister?) will fight this. Sounds like the husband is just rushing to make sure the kids stay on 'his side' of the family. Why would you give permanent custody to the parents of the murderer if the victims family has expressed a desire to care for them? This guy knows he's going down.

Who cares what Bruce wants? He freakin' killed his wife! Monica's sister better try and claim these kids because obviously Bruce's parents have masters degrees that qualify them to raise a murderer.

How about the maternal grandparents or the victim's siblings take custody? Anything to keep the kids away from the one that murdered his wife. In the end, the braggarts with the "Master Degrees" probably won't let the children see their mother's family. That is just wrong when their son murdered her.

Her sister should be given custody. That should have been what happened Day 1. You don't have to have a degree to raise decent children. Obviously, their degrees proved the total opposite. What a slug this SOB is to choose to leave his kids motherless.

DUE TO THE FACT HE'S RUNNING??? IN MEXICO WITH ENOUGH $$$ TO PAY OFF HE CAN FLEE AND KNOW HIS KIDS WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF AND HER PARENTS CAN'T GET CUSTODY. HE WILL SEE HIS KIDS AGAIN YOU WAIT AND SEE.

Where were the kids when he murdered his wife? Reports are saying other guests heard fighting in the room late in the evening which means the kids were probably in the room. They need to get far, far away and STAT from anyone connected to HIS side of the family. I do not care if they are recepients of Noble Peace Prizes!!!
