Fight Over Monica Burgos' Body

6/2/2010 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601_monica_burgos_exThere's a family fight brewing over plans to cremate Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman's body ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ Bruce Beresford-Redman never authorized cremation of Monica's body, contrary to what Monica's family is now alleging.

We're told when Bruce was being interviewed by Mexican authorities, they told him he must arrange for transportation of the body to the U.S. -- but that was the extent of it.  We're told Bruce was asked to sign a document, but he claims it was about transportation, not cremation.

Sources say Bruce gave his credit card to one of Monica's sisters to handle the transportation issue... and that was it.  But Carla Burgos tells TMZ her family never received a credit card from Bruce -- her family took care of everything.

Ultimately, Monica's body was not cremated and it was returned to L.A.

The whole situation is sad sad sad. The children have lost their mother. Along with EVERYTHING ELSE, will the kids have to know that their Mother's remains were dealt with in such a manor???
Some may say Monica's sister may be a bit over the top, but hey,
if I lost my sister under these cir***stances I would be totally nuts!

I really hope a sniper's bullet finds its way in to Bruce's head, and splits it open like a cantalope. I want that guy to bleed. Now that would bring in some ratings. An eye for an eye. Dead man walking.

I still don't get it. Why would this guy kill his wife??? I'm not saying he didn't, but why would he? The more I read about him the better his life sounds before the murder. I just don't get it.
