The outraged family of slain Monica Beresford-Redman fear her television producer husband has returned to Los Angeles to claim custody of his children, and then flee the United States, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Bruce Beresford Redman, a former for CBS’ hit show Survivor, is wanted for questioning in Mexico. However, the chief suspect in the brutal murder of his wife returned to Los Angeles at the weekend because, according to his attorney, he was not legally obligated to stay.
“If he was able to get back into the country without a passport, then he can get back out,” a source close to Bruce’s estranged in-laws exclusively told RadarOnline.com.
“Monica’s sisters are concerned that Bruce has come back to Los Angeles to get the children, Camila and Alex, and get them out of the country.
“Bruce appears to have resources to do this and the sisters don’t want that to happen.”
Officials in Cancun have more questions for Beresford-Redman regarding his wife’s death last month. Her body was found in a sewer pipe near the couple’s hotel, where they were holidaying in a bid to put the marriage back together after Beresford-Redman engaged in an affair with a coworker.
The television producer was never charged in the murder, but police still describe him as a suspect in the investigation.
Francisco Alor, attorney general of the state of Quintana Roo, where Cancun is located, had said Saturday that it would be a “very delicate and serious” matter if Beresford-Redman were to leave Mexico.
Beresford-Redman’s attorney, Richard Hirsch, said his client has retained a family attorney and will pursue legal custody of the couple’s two young children.
Beresford-Redman’s parents, David and Juanita Beresford-Redman, the children’s temporary legal guardians, are already battling Monica’s sister, Carla Burgos, for custody. Hirsch has said that Beresford-Redman will soon join that battle.
“If Bruce Beresford-Redman has nothing to do with her murder, why would be be running?” questioned the Burgos family.
