Someone please get Dog the Bounty Hunter on the line. A $1 million reward is being offered for information that will lead to a missing pair of ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, reports AP. The pair was stolen from a museum in Judy Garland’s hometown of Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Aside from the missing pair, three others exist, including one displayed at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington.

The 10-year anniversary of this grand theft is in August. The generous donor, who remains anonymous, is a huge fan of Judy Garland and the classic film, which was released in 1939.

What evil witch could have stolen these shoes? I have only one suspect in mind.
