'Survivor' Producer Challenges Arrest Warrant

6/26/2010 7:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0611_bruce_EX_TMZ_01TMZ has learned lawyers for Bruce Beresford-Redman have filed a formal motion in Mexican court to challenge the arrest warrant filed against their client.

We're told Beresford-Redman's Mexican attorney filed what is called an "amparo" -- a motion claiming Beresford-Redman's human rights have been violated.

Beresford-Redman's legal team feels the investigation into the death of Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman has not been thorough and has unjustly focused on Beresford-Redman ... possibly as a cover for rampant hotel violence.

Earlier this week, Mexican authorities made an official request to have Beresford-Redman extradited back to Mexico.

Here is the neighborhood gossip: Monica, a Brazilian national, committed various crimes in violation of USA laws herself. Not only was there illegal drug activity and sales going on at her bar, she tricked him into marrying her so she could remain in the USA. Although she had given birth to two children, she was into bi-sexual trysts - she left the day-to-day responsibility of nurturing them to a babysitter because she chose to be running/partying at the bar. (Sounds true to me - the real mothers I know aren't out raising hell nor running a bar). Finally, she even stole the money out of their joint bank account out of revenge against him. Even if there was a physical altercation between them at the hotel in Mexico - he had to defend himself against her proclivity for physically and verbally abusing him because she believed she was the stronger spouse. She was the boss. That is a category of domestic violence. She was pushing her luck acting the bully and she would up in the sewer.



He is a USA citizen thus he is in the USA instead of Mexico. The Mexican authorities can say whatever they want but the reality is that they have more important business to deal with in their country than the Burgos family bullying (bullying others runs in that family)He isn't hiding out in Palos Verdes - he is out working because he has the responsibility of raising his children, feeding and sheltering them, and paying the mortgage and vehicle payments. He is not going to run anywhere contrary to the propaganda spewed by her family and friends. That is why he has lawyered up.

GAG and Westside. Let me get this straight, your saying that your friend Bruce killed Monica and that she deserved it because she bullied him and took money out of their joint account. I guess you don't want to discuss any of the facts of the case, attacking the victim and her club is easier. Monica was brutally murdered by your friend Bruce and you are defending him. I guess there are lots of women that deserve to be murdered by your standards. most people divorce their wives, It is only the cowards and true pu**ies that don't want to pay child support and alimony that think the easy way out is murder. This is the mindset of a psychotic sociopath who is out of touch with reality. Bruce is a Coward and he is running like a little girl, he has no balls.

** GAG, I am having a problem adding the link on 'Hate circuit' discovered but do a search on the scientific research about the brain scan concerning the difference between love and hate (October 2008 by David Robson). You will recognize how it relates to this couple.

* Hey GAG, there is interesting scientific research related to what happened between these two people. I was having a difficult time inserting the link but hope it works this time. Check it out at:

Westside and Gag - your posts are so original and individually thought out??? Who the heck are you two losers? Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum?



Let me get this straight - you think Monica bullied BBR and because of your suspicions it is only right that he murdered her and dumped her into the sewer? You think because she ran a bar and partied she deserved to be murdered by this worthless piece of garbage? And the fact that you don't know any women who run bars
and party she must have been a terrible mother? Sorry boys but your logic leaves a whole lot to be desired.



More to the point - who cares what rumors you heard? As other posters have stated we are basing our opinions based on what we know to have happened. BBR and Monica were fighting - witnessed by a lot of people and in fact he was seen hitting her. She ends up dead stuffed in a sewer - he has scratches all over his body and comes up with a story that she went shopping - although according to security cameras she did not leave the resort. He took out a life insurance policy on her in the days before she ended up dead. He was having an affair. Motive, means and opportunity. Further, the Mexican authorities ran DNA tests and upon getting the results charged your buddy with first degree homicide. These are only some of the facts that have convinced the rest of us he is guilty as sin. It might prove more enlightening for you to blog when you have something original to say regarding Monica's murder not slanderous and unprovable comments about the victim's character. Otherwise save it for BBR, his parents and his attorney - that is if that is not who you are.

his attorney's are going to challenge the arrest warrant? based on what? their 'feelings' LOL! Trying to tie this crime to some random incidents around the resort? What physical evidence or witnesses do his lawyers have? LMFAO!
Mexico has conclusive DNA evidence. They took samples from the traces of blood they found in the hotel room. Bruce had scratches on him the day he reported her 'missing' and they did drug tests on him. Then they charged him after the forensics results came in.
Richard Hirsch will prove to be a huge waste of money. Bruce should have saved his money for the defense attorneys he will need in Mexico.
btw, GAG and westside are the same person. Most likely Bruce the douche bag himself or his crazy fat father. LMFAO!

Deborah - that is if that is who you are er Jeanne or Carla or Paula or you might be another jealous girl on girl friend - you sure have alot of inside information that other people and the media doesn't have access to. If "alot of people" in fact saw him hitting her - why aren't they talking about what they saw? How come her family and friends far away in another country are the ones trying to persuade us what happened at that resort with unprovable comments, opinions, and sidebars?



In fact, in my building, if we didn't live around the corner from the bar we wouldn't engage in listening to the gossip because we prefer Bossa Nova for great food, drinks, and ambiance - west of Pavilion Shopping Mall on Pico Boulevard. Monica's bikini bar is like she was: like attracts like. birds of a feather flock together.

Westside AKA douche bag Bruce. LMFAO at your stupid attempt at trying to pursuade our opinion. The fact of the matter is Bruce the douche lord is the one charged with murder. What Monica's character was or what her night bar is all about has no relevance and is pure speculation at this point.
Mexico has testimony from the witnesses. Google it actually you may actually see videos of the interviews the guests gave.
You are a moron and so are your lawyers.
haha and I heard Joran van der Slut's defense lawyer id blaiming the victime too. At least that ******* didn't kill the Mother of his own kids.

too funny that Bruce is engaged in damage control on this board (via Westside)...



Since you are paying attention Bruce: It takes a real coward and a pathetic human being to do what you have done. You killed your wife, you killed the mother of your children. You did it in a premeditated and horrible way. You, sir, deserve the worst of punishments and I sincerely hope you get it!

What I don't understand is why is he still roaming the street's of ANY country ? If there is an arrest warrant for him in Mexico wouldn't it stand to reason that the authorities in the United States would honor that warrant ? Or do we need to call the Dog the bounty hunter ??? LOL



Mexico arrests's American's and they get shipped back here, why isn't that the case here in reverse ? Do the citizen's of this country think it's okay for a murder suspect to walk the street's of our country as though nothing is happening ?

Looks like TMZ is having some fun deleting my post(s). I have good news for the Burgos family and friends. I am not Bruce. So, I give Bruce high points for ignoring the slings and arrows attacking him.

Since I know that I am not Bruce that is all that matters to me. I give Bruce high points for being above you idiot Burgos family and friends. Bruce is not responding to your slanderous comments.

Objectively speaking, none of you who are making the above comments, would be fit to serve on a jury. Everyone is making assumptions based on hearsay. Facts are different than opinions,and I'm sure the facts will emerge. Then, you may weigh all the evidence and facts, and state your opinion. We have not heard the entire story. There are too many insinuations and declarations made by people who know nothing. Obviously, all the above comments are made by people with agendas.

hahaha. Westiside/GAG = same person. ROFLMAO! Btw. the neighbourhood gossip is that Bruce is bi and was having flings with both men and women but mostly men. Everyone knows he sucked a lot of ****s to get that short lived producer gig.
Funny to see him anonymously giving himself 'points' on the TMZ blogs. desperate sad loser. :)
btw mexico has no trial by Jury. if you are going to pretend to be informed at least know the facts.
There is only one person defending Bruce on here with multiple logins and that is Bruce himself and hence the reason he suspects everyone else on here are relatives/friends of Monica's. Must suck to be a lonely ugly Bi f*ck with a huge nose accused of killing his own wife.
