Nation in brief: TV producer returns to U.S.

Mon., May 24, 2010

LOS ANGELES – A former “Survivor” producer wanted for questioning in Mexico about his wife’s death has returned to the United States, his lawyer said Sunday.

Bruce Beresford-Redman returned to Los Angeles County “to be with his children and attend to family and personal matters,” attorney Richard Hirsch said in a statement.

Hirsch said Beresford-Redman, who has not been charged with a crime, had no legal obligation to remain in Mexico while authorities investigate the death of his wife, Monica, whose body was found in a sewer at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun in April.
