Allan Gore and Betty first caught one another’s eye while in college in their home state of Kansas, yet their encounter was a little different since he served as a teacher’s assistant in her math class. Thus, they soon began dating after the class ended. Allan and Betty fell hard and fast before tying the knot in a small, beautiful ceremony in January 1970 — they essentially promised forever in their early 20s. Their young age or standing didn’t make the slightest difference to them, mainly because they were not only in love but also didn’t believe in divorce as an option for them.

Allan and Betty gradually welcomed two adorable daughters into their lives while settling down in Collin County, Texas, but not everything was always sunshine and roses in their suburban union. From Betty’s reported infidelity in New Mexico to Allan’s resentment towards their boring daily routine and from her deep-rooted fears of being left alone to his affair with church friend Candy Montgomery, it all impacted them in the late 70s. However, the couple still tried their best to continuously work on the betterment of their relationship so as not to let time take its toll on their emotions.
That’s why Allan deliberated for a while before beginning his affair with Candy and broke it off less than a year later, as soon as he realized he needed to concentrate more on his responsibilities as a husband and father. Moreover, Betty and Allan even attended the Marriage Encounter program — a weekend-long retreat to help long-term couples devote themselves to each other again. Hence, things between Allan and Betty were getting a lot better in 1980, that is, until he had to leave town for work on June 13, which ended up being the same day she allegedly lost his life at Candy’s hands.

After his wife died, he moved away from Wylie, Texas according to the Dallas News. He currently lives in Sarasota, Florida with a domestic partner. His daughters Alisa and Bethany were raised by Betty’s parents instead of him.
Candy and Allan officially set the date of the beginning of their affair on December 12, 1978. Their affair lasted about a year after Allan told Candy that he does not “necessarily feel different about” her but wishes to direct his “emotional involvement and energy” towards his family.
Candy confessed to the killing of Betty Gore in a hypnosis session with psychiatrist Dr. Fred Fason. She claimed at her trial that she visited Betty to pick up a swimsuit for Betty’s daughter, Alisa, who was staying with Candy and her husband for the night. While at Betty’s home, Betty confronted Candy about the affair with Allan, which Candy confessed to but told Betty that it happened a “long time ago.” Candy claimed at the trial that Betty left the room and came back with an ax, which she used to threaten Candy with to never see Allan again, which Candy agreed to. As she picked up Alisa’s swimsuit, Candy apologized to Betty, which, she claimed, caused Betty to become angry at her and shove her into a utility room.

Candy claimed that she and Betty had a long struggle that caused cuts on her toe and head. She also claimed that Betty told her that she wanted “to kill” her. Candy also alleged that she managed to take the ax away from Betty, and used the blade on Betty in self-defense before her friend could attack her again. In terror that she killed Betty, Candy tried to leave the room, but before she could do so, she claimed that Betty stopped her by slamming her body against the door.
During her hypnosis session, Candy also claimed that she suffered from childhood trauma that was triggered when she was told to “shush.” On the day of Betty’s death, Allan was out of town. When he couldn’t reach his wife by telephone, he asked the neighbors to check on her. After they forced their way into the home, they discovered Betty’s dead body, as Betty and Allan’s 1-year-old baby daughter, Bethany, who had been sleeping in her crib in another room at the time of the incident, was crying and awake. A few feet away from Betty was a three-foot-long ax, which authorities claimed that Candy used to slash Betty 41 times, including 28 times on her head and face.

Soon after the murder, Betty turned herself in to local authorities and was put on a $100,000 bond, according to Fort Worth Star-Telegram. After an eight-day trial—where the defense argued that Candy acted in self-defense and the prosecution argued that Betty was conscious when most of the stabs happened and that her death was intentional (and that she also showered in Betty’s bathroom after the murder)—
Candy was acquitted of murder charges in October 1980. Psychiatrists testified at the trial and claimed that Candy had a “dissociative reaction” that led her to stab Betty repeatedly. The incident was also protected under Texas’ “Stand Your Ground” law which permits the use of deadly force if necessary to prevent a violent crime, such as Betty’s violent threats against Candy. Ultimately, Candy was found not guilty by reason of self-defense. A jury acquitted her of the murder charges on October 29, 1980. She served no jail time. is a website that provides you with sport updates and Entertainment news to brighten your day. Don’t hesitate to visit our site to know more about entertainment news.
