The family of slain Los Angeles woman Monica Beresford Redman are pleading with her husband Bruce, the chief suspect in her murder, not to flee the United States with the couple’s children.
“The Burgos family is in shock over Bruce Beresford-Redman‘s sudden return to the United States,” Monica’s outraged family said in a statement, released on Monday night.
“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.”
Bruce Beresford-Redman was ordered to remain in Mexico while officials there conducted their investigation into his wife’s death at the resort where they were vacationing. He was required to turn in his passport but was allowed to travel freely through Mexico.
On Friday, Mexican officials tried twice to contact the former Survivor producer, and were unable to.
