LOS ANGELES -- Monica Beresford-Redman, whose gruesome death in Cancun is being investigated, allegedly filed a will leaving all of her property to her husband, who remains a "person of interest" in her murder.
Celebrity news website TMZ reports that in the will drafted in 2004, Monica left her jewelry, clothing, furniture, cars, books, real property and the entirety of her possessions to Bruce Beresford-Redman.

The will names Bruce as the executor with Monica's sister, Jeane Burgos-Carrno as the alternate executor. Monica's sister Carla Ferreira-Burgos is designated as the guardian of her children, if there becomes a need.
Bruce's parents currently have temporary guardianship of the couple's children, Camila, 5, and Alec, 3, and are petitioning for permanent guardianship.
Bruce has not been arrested or charged in Monica's killing, though is regarded as the main suspect in the murder investigation.
Prosecutors in Mexico are reviewing a series of e-mails between Bruce, his slain wife, Monica, and an alleged mistress that may provide a possible motive in the murder of Monica Beresford-Redman, according to the victim's family.
Monica Beresford-Redman's family gave copies of the e-mail exchanges to prosecutors when they arrived in Cancun in late April.
Carla and Jeane Burgos had said they and their mother, Ely, were traveling to Mexico to retrieve the victim's body and give a deposition in the case.
He has been ordered to stay in Mexico until the murder investigation is completed.
The e-mails, found on Monica's home computer, are dated through mid-March, less than a month before her death.
Rodolfo Garcia Pliego, the assistant attorney general of the Caribbean coast state of Quintana Roo confirmed he had read the messages.
Pliego would not discuss the contents of the e-mails but said, "it appears there were problems" in the couple's marriage.
Celebrity website RadarOnline has obtained exclusive copies of the e-mail exchanges.
In an e-mail posted on the site and dated March 10, Bruce wrote to his alleged mistress, Joy Pierce, telling her their affair was over.
"Our relationship was a mistake and is over. I am committing myself to being a husband and father and am making a number of changes in my life. I am going to write to many women who I am inappropriate with and tell them that I am making changes too," Bruce wrote.
"I am going to get therapy for being a liar," the email continues.
Bruce asked Pierce not to contact him, and said he would not contact her.
"It was just an affair for me, I am sorry that you became so involved. The love for you I mentioned in my letter to you was as a friend. With the changes I am making a friendship will no longer be possible either."
