STOLEN WIZARD OF OZ SHOES FOUND 13 YEARS LATER

There's no place like home for Dorothy's stolen ruby shoes. The Wizard of Oz's Dorothy had her shoes stolen 13 years ago from a Minnesota museum named the Judy Garland Museum and have finally rightfully been returned.

The shoes were stolen in 2005 when a thief climbed through a window and broke into the display case of the $1 million insured shoes. These iconic shoes were worn by the actress Judy Garland in 1939 during the movie the "Wizard of Oz". The shoes were placed in a Minnesota museum named after the actress, known as the Judy Garland Museum. These shoes are made out of many materials including: wood pulp, silk, plastic and glass. 
 
These shoes have made headlines as these shoes are more than just shoes but rather a symbol that represents many memories, culture, values and a unique time period. However, the thief has still not been found but investigators are actively still searching for the culprit.
