Let all your good Judies know that a pair of the original ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz have finally resurfaced after being stolen from the Minnesota Museum back in 2005.
Yesterday, the FBI (taking a break from all things Russia) announced that one of the four pairs of ruby slippers made for the 1939 classic had been found, and that the investigation was still ongoing.
According to Special Agent Joan Sanborn, “We’ve gathered lots of information on this case. We believe there’s lots more to give.”
Otherwise, the FBI was mum on the details.
No Place Like Home
Hopefully, the slippers will be returned to the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, where they had been on display for 35 years until they were loaned to the Minnesota Museum, and subsequently stolen.
The slippers themselves have been priced at as much as $2 Million, and have roughly 2,300 sequins.
