SHARE TUXEDO MAGNATE REVISITS PIT WHERE HE WAS CAPTIVE

Call it closure for tuxedo magnate Harvey Weinstein.

Weinstein marked the first anniversary of his release by kidnappers by returning to the 14-foot-deep pit where he was held for two weeks.Weinstein, 69, said he suffers no ill effects from the bizarre ordeal, but he did not want to go to the pit alone. So he asked the two detectives who arrested his kidnappers and rescued him to come along.

"I would have never suggested bringing him back there, but I know he needed to do it for himself," said Detective Ruben Santiago.

They went to the site in New York Tuesday, a year to the day after Weinstein was freed. Kidnappers had held him in the dark hole with little food or water, demanding a $3 million ransom.

"We looked down in the hole," Santiago said. "It was like the same day a year ago."
