The body of Bruce's wife, Monica Beresford-Redman, was discovered on April 8 in a sewer at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun. TMZ broke the story that Beresford-Redman is back in L.A. Now his lawyer, Richard Hirsch, says that since his client has not been accused of a crime, he has a legal right to custody of his children.
Hirsch adds, "That is probably what is going to happen next."
Beresford-Redman's parents currently have temporary guardianship of his two children.
Hirsch tells TMZ Beresford-Redman has already retained a family law attorney to assist him.
