Devore disappeared in June 1997, prompting an extensive search and media speculation. A year later, his car was discovered submerged in the California Aqueduct in Palmdale, California.[1] A 2014 documentary film, The Writer with No Hands attempts to prove that he was a victim of the CIA.

Devore had began his writing career with Chuck Barris on TV game shows like The Gong Show.

He married Nat King Cole's widow, Maria Cole (1969-78) and the actresses Sandie Newton (1981-1985), Claudia Christian (1988-92) and Wendy Devore (1993-1997).
