“Candy ss 2”: release date, announcement
The continuation of the crime drama “Candy” has not been announced. The story is based on real events that took place in the state of Texas and is a mini-series that does not need to be continued.
…and the next day, Candy decided to take the kids to the bible school on her own. While they were in the production, Candy went to Gore’s house. And the next thing they show us is a bloody Candy sitting in the car, wet and completely confused. Not understanding what happened, she immediately goes home, changes clothes and rushes after the children…
On the morning of that day, Betty accompanied her husband Allan to another business trip. She left with her second child, still a baby. Suffering from postpartum depression, Betty could hardly bear the company of a screaming child. She tried to drown out his screams by all available means: she sewed on a sewing machine, vacuumed … At the same time, her bad mood did not disappear.
Taking out her choking emotions over the phone on Allan’s boss, Betty stopped picking up the phone. Already being hundreds of kilometers from home, the husband repeatedly tried to get through to her. In the past, Betty always answered the phone, whether they were in a fight or not. This time they were not in touch for the whole day. Having sounded the alarm, Allan began to call the neighbors and ask them to break the window to see how Betty was doing.
The seriously alarmed neighbors went to check the Gore house. Meanwhile, Candy was putting the kids to bed and trying to remember what she was doing before waking up covered in blood and wounds in her own car. Allan’s night call to her house was expected — the heartbroken husband told Candy that his wife had been shot, and the neighbors had sheltered the youngest child for a while.
Endless interrogations began, as a result of which Mrs. Montgomery soon became the main suspect. Her bizarre injuries and absence from the bible school celebration led the police to believe that she had killed her friend. Betty’s body was so mutilated that the neighbors who found her thought she had been shot in the face with a shotgun.
In fact, Batty was hacked to death with an ax, inflicting more than 40 blows on her, most of the wounds were on the head. People who knew Candy could not believe that she was capable of such a thing. But when the details of her affair with Allan were revealed, the investigation took an unexpected turn…
