Eerily enough, it was sold in only a couple of weeks...
Back in the early '80s, a small, unknown town in Texas became the infamous sight of a murder. It was a crime so notorious and brutal that it's currently being highlighted in a Hulu true-crime series.

Candy, starring Jessica Biel, highlights the homicide of Betty Gore in Wylie, Texas, in June of 1980. The story goes, Candy Montgomery, a well-to-do, churchgoing Texas lady seemingly out of nowhere brutalized Gore, her church BFF, one summer afternoon — Friday the 13th, mind you.
Much of what is known about the case comes from a 1984 article published in Texas Monthly. The report recounts everything that led to neighbors finding Gore lifeless in her laundry room with a bloody ax nearby.
Here\u2019s the laundry room today. Looks like it might have been expanded at some point? #bettygore #CandyOnHulupic.twitter.com/DiZtOgAbiR— Norm Dietrich (@Norm Dietrich) 1652410287
Including the most glaring detail — Candy was actually having an affair with Gore's husband, Allan.
The source in Texas Monthly's investigation paints the picture of a jealous lover who eventually gets rejected, which turned out to be a motive for killing Betty.
Candy was tried for murder but pleaded she killed her friend, who was allegedly in a rageful fit about Candy and Allan's affair just before her death, out of self-defense.
Candy was found not guilty in 1980.
Eerily enough, according to Realtor, the house the killing took place in is actually still there on Dogwood street; and, yes, people can actually fathom living in it because it reportedly sold back in March for over the asking price of $344,900.
The real estate agent said, "It looks like a normal house. It's been remodeled enough that it's a different flow."
The publication states the property was sold on many other occasions since the events took place in its old laundry room.
