On September 4, 2018, the FBI announced that a pair of the red slippers that Judy Garland wore in “The Wizard of Oz” was finally recovered. The slippers had been stolen thirteen years previously from the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. The FBI did not disclose who stole the famous footwear, just that a “middle man named Ms. Elphaba” had returned them. To this day, no one has come forward claiming to be the thief, even though the statute of limitations has expired on the theft, and the FBI isn’t talking.
