The FBI has solved a case of stolen memorabilia involving the movie “The Wizard of Oz,” and it looks like there’s a local connection. A news release says a pair of stolen ruby slippers worn in the 1939 classic movie has been recovered.
The FBI will release details at a news conference in Minneapolis Tuesday afternoon, and one of the speakers will be North Dakota U.S. Attorney Chris Myers which suggests a local tie to the theft case.
The shoes were taken from the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, MN, in August of 2005. They were one of several pair created and worn in the movie by garland, who was born in Minnesota. (Valley News Live)
