Mexico Allows Survivor Producer Murder Suspect to Return to US

Mexican officials have actually allowed Murder Suspect Bruce Beresford-Redman to return to the United States and Los Angeles. Suspected of killing wife, Monica, while vacationing in Cancun, he had been missing the past several days, where Mexican police said they were unable to locate him for questioning.
The former Survivor television show Producer had previously had his U.S. passport confiscated-barred from leaving Mexico after his wife, Monica, was found murdered in Cancun during the couples' vacation in April 2010. The former producer of popular television shows "Survivor" and "Pimp My Ride" has been accused of murdering his wife during a romantic getaway the pair took in April. Monica Burgos went to Cancun, Mexico for a romantic trip, came up missing, and was subsequently found dead, wrapped in a blanket in a sewage tank. He's accused by Mexican police of strangling his wife.
Worse yet, the couple's children were with them during the Cancun trip, and Beresford-Redman was arrested in Mexico on her birthday. Mexican authorities or police there have not given an official statement about the murder case or releatesed much information. Mexican authorities detained and accused Bruce Beresford-Redman, in what the police there believe is murder of his wife. Beresford-Redman reported her missing to Mexican police, supposedly after she didn’t return from a shopping trip. Cancun hotel employees at the resort, however, say they saw them arguing and heard him threaten to hit her.
Beresford-Redman wife's body was discovered only 80 meters from their hotel room at the Moon Palace Hotel in Cancun, found in a nearby sewage tank. Mexican authorities had been taking the murder seriously, having taken away his United States passport to prevent him from fleeing back to the United States. Beresford-Redman's lawyer, Richard Hirsch, said his client has returned to Los Angeles to be with the couples' two children, Camila, 5, and Alec, 4. Mexican police informed Beresford-Redman that he is not legally required to remain in Mexico during the rest of the murder investigation. The children have been in temporary custody with their paternal grandparents since the tragedy occurred.
Mexico suspects that this guy strangled and killed his wife, and now Mexico has allowed him to roam free and, better, yet, return to the country in order to be with his children? Why, exactly, does the U.S. want him here, simply because Mexico is unable to properly prosecute or even arrest him? His attorney says, "He is devastated by the loss of his wife, best friend, and the mother of his children. He and his family are requesting that their privacy be respected during this time of great grief and sorrow."
Even better: Mexico thinks he's killed his wife, we're actually allowing him to re-enter our country, and he's requesting privacy? Less than 48 hours ago, the family of slain Monica Beresford-Redman was outraged that Mexican authorities had lost track of him, as the "only suspect" in the case; when they learned that Bruce could not be located, the family said: "our greatest fears about the investigation being conducted by the Mexican authorities were realized." This development comes as news to the head of the investigative team in Mexico who, late Friday, revealed [Mexican authorities and police] had been unable to find Beresford-Redman for questioning.
