Candy and Betty meet on June 13, 1980

It seemed that the affair was over after months. Candy then went to the Gore residence on June 13th 1980 to retrieve Alisa’s bathing suit, which Betty had forgotten during a sleepover.

Candy testified that Candy was completely and totally surprised at what happened next. According to Texas Monthly, Candy recounted to the jury in October 1980 that Betty flatly asked her if she had slept with Allan, to which Candy said no. But when Betty asked a second time, Candy admitted to the affair.

Candy told jurors that Betty then walked to the garage and grabbed an axe before walking back and telling Candy to never sleep with Allan again. They talked some more and Candy apologized, but this angered Betty, who, according to Candy, insisted, “I’ve got to kill you.”

Candy claimed that Betty kept swinging the axe as Candy begged her to stop. Betty was later found dead in the bathroom.
