In an emotional interview, the family of a Hollywood television producer's wife found murdered in Cancun, says they're going to Mexico to retrieve her body.The lawyer for the family of Monica Beresford-Redman is quoted as saying an arrest in the case is imminent.

Family members of the victim are preparing to go to Mexico to take custody of her body. They also plan to get an update on the murder investigation and will give a deposition.

Carla Burgos and Jeane Ferria-Burgos are the sisters of murder victim Monica. The sisters say they'll be accompanied by their mother to retrieve their sister's body.

So far the investigation has focused on the victim's husband, Bruce Beresford-Redman, a former "Survivor" producer and creator of the MTV show "Pimp My Ride."

Witnesses reportedly saw the couple arguing the night before Monica vanished. Her body was found dead in a sewer at the Cancun resort where the family was staying. Her sisters say all they want is justice.

An attorney for Monica's family, Allison Triessl, says an arrest in the case is imminent.

The family is asking the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, the FBI and the U.S. State Department to join the investigation. Triessl says the agencies could help execute search warrants in the U.S. that may shed more light on the case.

Bruce Beresford-Redman remains in Mexico. He is being overseen by the U.S. Consulate in Merida, Mexico. He is not allowed to leave until the investigation is complete.
