The family of Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman is "in shock" over Bruce Beresford-Redman's sudden return to the U.S. -- and now they are begging Bruce not to run off with his children.
Alison Triessl, attorney for the family tells TMZ, "The Burgos family is in shock over Bruce Beresford-Redman's sudden return to the United States," adding they assumed he'd stay in Mexico during the investigation.
Triessl questions how Beresford-Redman could return to the U.S. without a passport: "It leads us to conclude he could just as easily leave this country undetected."
Triessl says Mexican authorities should have test results this week. She concludes with this: "We plead with Mr. Beresford-Redman that if he intends to run again that he not involve the children."
