The world mourned when The Wizard of Oz star died in 1969 of an accidental barbiturate overdose. She was 47.

She was buried at the Rosewood Mausoleum in Hartsdale, just outside New York City. But now comes surprising reports that her remains have been moved to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

The actress was apparently moved after her daughter, Liza Minnelli, requested the transfer because there wasn't enough room for Garland's three children, including Minnelli, to be buried alongside her in New York.

At the mausoleum in New York, flowers are still left for the star, even after she had reportedly been moved.
