With a closely shaved head and a beard, Bruce Beresford-Redman is unrecognizable after being released from a Mexican prison for murdering his wife.

The former "Survivor" and "Pimp My Ride" producer is back in Los Angeles, California, after serving seven years for killing his wife, Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman, at a Cancun resort in 2010. He had been sentenced to 12 years.

"Why were you released early?" Inside Edition's Jim Moret asked him outside the home.

"I have no comment," he said.

Beresford-Redman, now 48, and his wife were on vacation with their two children when she vanished. Her naked and bruised body was later discovered in the sewer of their vacation resort, and it was determined she had died by suffocation.

Authorities said Beresford-Redman had hit his wife over the head with an object before strangling her and dumping her body.

According to his wife's sister, the trip had been a "reconciliation vacation" for the couple after he'd admitted he was having an affair.

He was detained in California and extradited to Mexico in 2012. He was convicted in 2015.

Beresford-Redman has always maintained his innocence.

His former attorney told KNBC inmates in Mexico are eligible for release after 60 percent of their sentence.
