Still a suspect in his wife's murder, Bruce Beresford-Redman has been released by Mexican authorities.
But a Los Angeles court has granted temporary custody of his children (ages five and three) to the former TV producer's parents. The children will reside with these relatives while police determine if Beresford-Redman played a role in his wife's death.
"My wife and I are grief-stricken at the loss of our beloved daughter-in-law," Bruce's father, David Beresford-Redman, said yesterday. "We know our son loved Monica and would never have harmed her."
That's not what Carla Burgos says, however. She claims Bruce was having an affair and is positive he's responsible for her sister's murder.
Beresford-Redman has been handed over to the U.S. Consolate and taken to an undisclosed location in Mexico.
"He can't leave the country," said Francisco Alor, attorney general for the state of Quintana Roo. "We still can't say that he is responsible, but that's the starting point of the investigation because we have witnesses who say he was the last to see her alive."
