Bruce Beresford-Redman, the occasional producer of CBS' "Survivor" and "Pimp My Ride" on MTV, was released from questioning by Mexican authorities, but cannot leave the country as the investigation into his wife's homicide continues, according to the LA Times. It has been reported that following his wife's disappearance, he left Mexico to drop off his kids before returning to Cancun and reporting her missing.

In a statement, Beresford-Redman's family said he "loved [his wife] and would never have harmed her."

Beresford-Redman and his wife Monica had traveled to a Cancun resort last weekend to work on their marriage. Following an apparent fight that witnesses heard and a security guard allegedly saw, she was reported missing--she went shopping and never returned, it was said--and later found dead on resort property. The death has shocked L.A.'s Brazilian community as she was the owner of the popular Zabumba Restaurant and Bar on Venice Boulevard.
