WHERE IS BETTY GORE'S HUSBAND ALLAN TODAY?
By MATT REIGLE
History - Science
The brutal murder of Betty Gore stunned a small Texas community, when she was found on the floor of her laundry room with 40 ax wounds to her body. Gore had been murdered by one of her best friends, Candy Montgomery, who had been having an affair with Gore’s husband, Allan.
Allan Gore was never considered a suspect in his wife's death due to the fact that he was in another state at the time, and that it was his concern that led to the discovery of her body. Allan Gore quickly remarried after his wife's death, before Candy Montgomery even went to trial — around the same time when he also lost custody of the couple’s two daughters.
The girls lived with Betty's parents, and while Gore and his daughters became estranged over the years, it has been reported that they eventually reconciled. Gore is believed to now live in the Sarasota, Florida area and has since divorced his second wife. He has otherwise maintained a fairly low profile.
