On June 13, 1980, Betty Gore, an elementary school teacher, was fatally stabbed inside her own Dogwood Street home, shocking Wylie, Texas, to its very core. After all, the married mother-of-two was attacked with a 3-foot-long axe 41 times, as detailed in Hulu’s “Candy” and HBO Max’s “Love & Death,” and her admitted attacker ultimately got away with it by claiming self-defense. We now have the pertinent information for you if you want to learn more about Allan Gore, Betty’s husband, who was arguably at the forefront and centre of this issue.
Who is Allan Gore?
Betty and Allan Gore first noticed each other while attending college in their native Kansas, but their meeting was a little different because he was a teaching assistant in her maths class. Thus, after the class was over, they quickly started dating. Before getting married in a small, lovely ceremony in January 1970, Allan and Betty fell deeply and quickly; in their early 20s, they essentially made an eternal commitment. They didn’t care at all about their young age or social standing, primarily because they were deeply in love and didn’t see divorce as an option for them.

While settling in Collin County, Texas, Allan and Betty gradually welcomed two adorable daughters into their lives. However, not everything was always peaches and cream in their suburban marriage. It all affected them in the late 1970s, from Betty’s alleged adultery in New Mexico to Allan’s resentment of their mundane daily routine, from her ingrained fears of being left alone to his affair with church friend Candy Montgomery. However, in order to prevent time from wearing on their emotions, the couple continued to make every effort to improve their union.
Because of this, Allan took his time before starting an affair with Candy and ended it less than a year later when he realised he needed to focus more on his duties as a husband and father. Betty and Allan even participated in the Marriage Encounter programme, a weekend-long retreat designed to help committed couples rediscover their love for one another. As a result, Allan and Betty’s relationship improved significantly in 1980—that is, until he had to leave town for work on June 13, the day he allegedly died at Candy’s hands.
Where is Allan Gore Now?
The discovery of Betty Gore’s remains occurred as a result of Allan Gore’s frightened request to their neighbours to check in on Betty as the day’s fateful evening wore on and he was unable to reach his wife. It’s important to note that despite Allan’s painful reactions and the proof that was at hand, his background did turn out to be extremely significant. In other words, Allan’s admission of his prior relationship with Candy was what officials used to determine a motive and proceed with her arrest – a point that was carefully made in her jury trial in Fall 1980.
Many reports claim that Allan remarried during the brief period of time between Betty’s passing and Candy’s court case, and as a result, he lost custody of his two daughters to his late wife’s parents. He quickly grew distant from them, but as we can see from the now-Facebook divorcee’s account, they appear to be reestablishing contact once more, which is all that matters. Also, it appears that Allan is retired, living in Sarasota, Florida, and enjoying a new “domestic partnership” with someone.
