Slain Wife's Kin: TV Producer Hasn't Reached Out

A judge in Mexico has issued an arrest warrant for former "Survivor" producer Bruce Beresford-Redman, who's suspected in the killing of his wife, Monica Beresford-Redman.

Her family put out a scathing statement late Monday, "leaving no doubt about their feelings toward Beresford-Redman," observes "Early Show" national correspondent Hattie Kauffman.

"It has been 56 days since Monica was brutally murdered," the statement says. "At no point during that time, did he or his family reach out to the Burgos family to express their sympathy or share in their grieving. Bruce never made any effort to locate Monica nor did he assist the Mexican authorities in their investigation."

Earlier Monday, Kauffman points out, Bruce Beresford-Redman was once again seen in the backyard of his Los Angeles-area home, enjoying time with the couple's kids.

He's accused murdering Monica two months ago while they were at a resort in Cancun. Friends say they were trying to patch up a troubled marriage.

Bruce Beresford-Redman's lawyer, Richard Hirsch, told reporters, "There would certainly be an extradition proceeding and we would be fighting extradition."

Also Monday, Bruce Beresford-Redman issued a statement of his own, saying, "I am innocent. My children have had one parent taken from them by a senseless act of violence. I implore the Mexican authorities not to take the remaining parent by a miscarriage of justice."

But the Burgos family, in its statement, countered, "If in fact he is innocent, then he should have no problem waiving extradition proceedings and returning to Mexico to defend himself. However, if he is guilty, then shame on him for exploiting his children. He should have considered them before committing this senseless and brutal act of domestic violence upon their mother."

Some of those who attended a memorial for Monica on Sunday said they also have no doubt who is responsible for her death. "Her husband killed her. It's clear. It's very clear," was a typical reaction.

Hirsch insists Beresford-Redman didn't flee from justice, even though Mexican authorities seized his passport. "Unless someone is arrested or is ordered by a judge in Mexico to remain," Hirsch says, "they are free to leave. And he did so."

Now, says Kauffman, it appears he may be forced to return -- this time, as a murder suspect.
