Beresford-Redman reported his wife missing on April 6, 2010, telling police and relatives that she never made it back to the hotel after a solo shopping excursion the day before, authorities said.

Burgos’ badly decomposed body was discovered two days later in a sewer at the Moon Palace Hotel on what would have been her 42nd birthday.

Two years later, Beresford-Redman was extradited to Mexico by U.S. Marshals to face trial in her death.
