Dead woman's mom aids Cancun investigators

Monica Beresford-Redman's mother met with a prosecutor in Cancun, Mexico, for several hours Tuesday night concerning her daughter's death at a resort two weeks ago.

Quintana Roo state Attorney General Francisco Alor was still waiting Wednesday on forensic test results before deciding if reality TV producer Bruce Beresford-Redman, the dead woman's husband, would be allowed to leave Mexico.

Beresford-Redman was detained as a suspect soon after his wife's body was found in a sewer near their Cancun hotel room, but he was released a day later while police gathered more evidence. The initial investigation suggested Monica Beresford-Redman "died of strangulation, because of the bruising," regional police spokesman Adrian Cardena said.

Ely Burgos flew to Cancun Tuesday on a mission to retrieve her daughter's body and to provide information to investigators. Burgos gave them copies of e-mails exchanged between Bruce and Monica Beresford-Redman in the weeks before their Cancun trip - a trip that was an effort to save their troubled marriage, relatives said.
