(Newser) – A former Survivor producer wanted for questioning in Mexico about his wife's death has returned to the United States, his lawyer said today. Bruce Beresford-Redman returned to Los Angeles County "to be with his children and attend to family and personal matters." The lawyer said Beresford-Redman, who has not been charged, had no legal obligation to remain in Mexico while authorities investigate the death of his wife, Monica, whose body was found in a Cancun sewer in April.

"He is devastated by the loss of his wife, best friend, and the mother of his children," the lawyer said. Beresford-Redman's passport had been confiscated and he was ordered not to leave Mexico. Police described him as a suspect. It was unclear how he left the country without a passport. Monica Beresford-Redman's family strongly criticized Mexican investigators earlier this month, saying it had taken too long to make an arrest. They expressed concern Bruce Beresford-Redman might flee Mexico or the case could fall apart if too much time passes. (Read more Bruce Beresford-Redman stories.)
