Family of Mexico Murder Victim 'in shock' Over TV Producer Husband's Return to L.A.
Although he has not been charged with the murder of his wife Monica, reality television producer Bruce Beresford-Redman remains a "person of interest" in the case, and has surfaced back home in Los Angeles, despite expectations he would remain in Mexico where she was killed.
Now Monica Beresford-Redman's family has come forward expressing dismay that their late relative's husband left Mexico, reports LA Now. Her family released a statement:
"The Burgos family is in shock over Bruce Beresford-Redman's sudden return to the United States. It is our understanding that he was to remain in Mexico until the investigation into Monica's death was concluded. As Mr. Beresford-Redman is certainly aware, the investigation remains ongoing with test results to be released early this week. It is further our understanding that his passport was not returned to him by Mexican authorities. Thus, we question how it was possible that he was permitted to enter into this country without a passport and it leads us to conclude that he could just as easily leave this country undetected. We plead with Mr. Beresford-Redman that if he intends to run again that he not involve the children."
The couple had been on vacation in Mexico, purportedly attempting to patch up a rocky relationship, when her dead body was found in the gutter outside their Cancun hotel. Beresford-Redman's lawyer says his client has returned to Los Angeles to be with the children and see to personal matters, and that he had "no legal obligation" to remain in Mexico.
