‘Survivor’ Producer’s Children Deceived About Mother’s Death

According to TMZ, suspected murderer and ex ‘Survivor’ producer Bruce Beresford-Redman’s mother lied to her grandchildren about their mother’s death, falsely stating that Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman died in a car accident.


I do not understand why Juanita [Bruce Beresford-Redman’s mother] provided so many horrible, not to mention untrue, details about their mother’s death.
