Judy Garland’s stolen ruby slippers found after 13 years:
A combine of ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz has been found thirteen years after being stolen, according to United States authorities.
They were taken from a Minnesota museum in 2005, when someone bust 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 a 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.
