The Great Oz Ruby Slipper Mystery

posted by Pat Mars - 

Crime Catagory: SOLVED


A pair of ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz has been found 13 years after being stolen, according to US authorities.

They were taken from a Minnesota museum in 2005, when someone broke in through a window late at night.

Three others pairs of ruby slippers worn by Garland in the 1939 film are known to exist.

An anonymous donor once offered a $1m (£775,000) reward for the stolen pair's whereabouts and the thief's name.

However, the reward expired on the tenth anniversary of the robbery.

It is unknown if the shoes' recovery is related to any tip-offs.

In press conference on Tuesday afternoon, no specific details were given about where they were found or how.

FBI special agent Joan Sanborn indicated that the investigation was still ongoing. "We've gathered lots of information on this case. We believe there's lots more to give," she said.

The slippers are often said to among the most valued props in movie history.

This pair was insured for $1m but experts have said they could be worth two times that now.
