Million Dollar Reward Offered for Stolen Wizard of Oz Slippers

It has been almost ten years since a pair of ruby slippers were stolen from the Judy Garland Museum, in Grand Rapids, Minnesota in August of 2005. Garland wore the slippers in the iconic 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz. The stolen slippers are one of only four pairs worn by Garland.

An anonymous donor has come forward to offer a $1 million dollar reward for credible information leading to the location of the slippers or to anyone who turns them into police in their original condition.

John Kelsch, executive director of the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, says the donor is from Arizona and is a huge fan of Garland and the 1939 movie. The slippers were originally insured for $1 million dollars, but Kelsch says they could be valued at $2 million to $3 million dollars today.
