Who is Alan Gore?

Allan Gore is best known as the ex-husband of elementary school teacher Betty Gore.

The two previously met when Betty went to college in Kansas, where Allan worked as a teaching assistant, and later moved to Texas.

Outwardly, their marriage seemed normal, but later it turned out to be full of infidelity and boredom.

Still, both tried to make it work because they didn’t believe in a divorce, according to The Cinemaholic.

Aside from being part of the criminal case, not much information is available about Allan’s personal life.

What happened to Betty Gore?

In 1980, Betty Gore was brutally murdered by her friend Candace “Candy” Montgomery after hitting her 41 times with an ax, Newsweek reports.

At the time Allan was away on business and Candy had gone to the Gore resident to get a bathing suit for her daughter who was staying the night at Candy’s house.

After not hearing from his wife, he became concerned and asked the neighbors to call the house.

According to Bustle, upon entry, neighbors found Betty’s body and her 1-year-old daughter, who had been left alone all day.

Candy later confessed to murdering her but claimed she acted in self-defense after Betty confronted her about the affair she was having with her husband.

Allan was reportedly never a serious suspect in Betty’s murder and it was in fact his confession to the affair that led police to Candy in the first place.

Candy was then charged with murder but found not guilty by a jury in 1984.

Betty’s story is now the subject of a new Hulu series entitled Candy.

Where is Allan Gore now?

Shortly after Betty’s death, Allan quickly remarried and lost custody of his children to Betty’s parents.
