'Survivor' Producer Wants Custody of Children

5/23/2010 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519_bruce_EX_3TMZ has learned one of Bruce Beresford-Redman's first moves now that he is back in Los Angeles is to regain custody of his children.

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.

The FBI and the Justice Department have enough evidence, as collected by the Mexican authorities, to charge this man for murder. He is receiving the kit glove treatment here, because he is rich and well connected. Clearly, he fled back to the U.S. to take charge of his bank account and money deals, which suggests that he plans to flee the U.S., and take the children with him. He should be immediately arrested, and charged for murder, or sent back to Mexico for violation of the terms of his release. If I was a family menber of the woman who was murdered, I would take justice into my own hands, since it appears the authorities are now on the take, and plan to deliver no justice here, even though they have enough evidence, including wounds on the body of the suspect, for a death penalty charge.

Didn't Mexican authorities confiscate his passport? How did he get back into the U.S.? So much for border safety! Ship his butt back to Mexico and revoke his bail.

#53 - you make very good points - now to accomplish what you want - "Walk Your Talk," - get your check book out and travel to your nearest Western Union office & wire USD $$$,$$$.xx to the Mexican Authorities - if your payoff is adequate, you just may get what you want.

Hey folks,



What happened to "innocent until proven guilty in a court of law"?



Bruce is a really sweet guy who'd never hurt anyone. Monica's sister has always had a crush on Bruce and if she weren't so blinded by her desire for him she'd think to be nicer to Bruce and maybe she could raise her sister's kids together with him.

Sounds like child abuse to make the kids live with the man that killed their Mom. Just like poor OJ's kids. His bank accounts should be frozen and the kids should be given to a relative of his wife's.

Yup, Another OJ murder deal. Guy murders wife, pays off
authorities, then wants the kids back.



Kharma will get this guy in the end.

DON'T GO TO MEXICO!!!!
I think the man was very lucky to have left Mexico." What will be will be." I hope he is innocent. His children need our prayers. Would you leave your children in Mexico?? I don't think so.
Many are corrupt. Think about it. think real hard....
