'Survivor' Producer Back in U.S.

5/23/2010 3:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0511_survivor_EXTMZ has learned Bruce Beresford-Redman -- the former "Survivor" producer who was not allowed to leave Mexico during the investigation into his wife's murder -- has returned to Los Angeles.

Richard Hirsch, Beresford-Redman's lawyer, tells TMZ that Mexican officials allowed his client to leave the country. As Hirsch puts it, "He has been informed that he has no legal obligation to remain in Mexico pending an investigation into the tragic death of his wife, Monica."

Hirsch tells TMZ his client "has returned to Los Angeles County to be with his children and attend to family and personal matters."

Mexican officials had previously told Beresford-Redman not to leave Mexico and had taken his passport. It is unclear if Beresford-Redman got it back.

Hirsch adds, "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."

I need to understand this correctly...
This "Murder Suspect" (who's picture has been on every international news outlet there is) is now in Los Angeles after supposedly being told by Mexican officials NOT to leave Mexico.
His passport was taken. He wasn't under surveillance or traceable for the past several days.
Now he is back in LA, hired a family law attorney and is seeking custody of his children Monday.
How did he get here? If he crossed the "border" without legal do***ents Someone needs to backtrack his route and close it, fire whoever helped and arrest whoever helped for Federal violations, right?
Maybe that will stop a few immigration issues, too.

"You can pput money on it he paid his way back to the US. I hope the mexico has enough on this guy. But there is a good chance he can pay off Mexico officals and walk free if he hasn't already.



Yes you can now take your wife across the border kill her pay off officals and come back to the US because police her can't touch you. The other half of the family thats in real morning they lost there daughter, sister! Redman and his family isn't morning anything I don't respect the privacy of a killer!

Holy bad grammar, Batman! It's "mourning" not "morning" and it's "their" daughter not "there". Also, it's "too little" not "to little".

so without a passport, this guy can never leave the US again.? He can't go apply for a new one or say it was "lost or stolen" since records would show it is being held by federales in Mexico.
