Was Betty Gore Pregnant When She Was Murdered?

True crime cases have taken over our world and have become a source of recreation and alertness too. If you are a fan of true crime stories, chances are that you know about Betty Gore and her murder case.

Betty Gore was slashed 41 consecutive times in 1980 by one of her friends, Candy Montgomery. Although the murder wasn’t a planned attempt, things escalated the night of the murder back in June 1980, leading to Betty’s death.

Candy went to Betty’s house to get a bathing suit for Betty’s daughter, who was having a sleepover at Candy’s house, with her kids. While things started normal, Betty soon confronted Candy about having an affair with Betty’s husband, which escalated the situation.

If you are wondering why there is a sudden growing popularity surrounding this case, it is due to Hulu’s recently released show, Candy.

Was Betty Gore Pregnant when Murdered?

Betty Gore was not pregnant when she died. However, Betty and her husband, Allan, welcomed a girl a year prior named Bethany.

The little girl was inside the house when Candy murdered Betty. According to reports, Bethany has left along and unattended in the house, following Betty’s murder, for an entire day, until the neighbors broke into the house.

It was Allan’s neighbor, Richard Allen, who found Bethany crying in hunger and covered in vomit, suggesting that something wasn’t right in the house.

Is Allan to be Blamed for the Murder?

As we mentioned, the murderous rage in Candy rose when Betty accused her of having an affair with her husband, Allan.

However, reports suggest that Allan ended his affair with Candy temporarily when he and Betty were expecting their little girl, Bethany. According to the reports in Texas Monthly, Allan refused to have an affair with Candy, citing that he didn’t feel the same about her as he did for Betty.

Betty also had a history of cheating on Allan, which deeply hurt the latter. However, Allan didn’t want to put Betty through the same pain and hurt and hence avoided the affair altogether. However, despite the reluctance initially, Allan later gave in and the two started having an affair.
