'Survivor' Producer Bruce Beresford-Redman: I Didn't Kill My Wife

Bruce Beresford-Redman, the former "Survivor" producer accused of killing his wife Monica two years ago, is speaking out for the first time -- and claims he is innocent.

Beresford-Redman said on "48 Hours Mystery" in an episode airing Saturday at 10 PM, "Everyone seems to have decided that I killed my wife. I didn't kill my wife. I really didn't."

The reality show producer, whose past credits also include "The Contender," is currently in a Cancun jail after being extradited from the U.S. two weeks ago. Monica's family suspects Bruce is guilty after he defied Mexican authorities and fled to the U.S. while trying to fight the extradition.

In 2010, Beresford-Redman and his family were vacationing at a luxury resort in Cancun, when Monica discovered he was having an affair. Beresford-Redman said his wife went out shopping one morning and never returned. Monica's naked body was discovered beaten in a sewer near the resort.

"For anyone who really believes... that you're innocent until you're proven guilty, please take a look at the evidence. Or in this case, the absolute complete lack of evidence," he said, adding, "I doubt that there will ever be a satisfying resolution for this because the evidence is gone. Even if I do manage to get off, I don't know if Monica's killers will ever really be caught."
