Tad Cummins Told Wife He Slept with Teen, She Says

Tennessee Teen Abducted By Teacher Was Reportedly Abused By Her Mother

Prior to disappearing, Cummins had been suspended from the high school where he taught social sciences and where Elizabeth Thomas was a student, after authorities became suspicious about their relationship. Her family said the teen was having panic attacks and appeared to be jittery. He also faces a federal charge of bringing a minor across state lines for sex. "I'm scared to death", she said at the time.

Tad CumminsTennessee Bureau of InvestigationThe California cabin where authorities say Tad Cummins and Elizabeth Thomas were found.

"I didn't want any details", she told "Inside Edition" in an interview that aired Thursday.

However, Jill told Inside Edition that she would not "let him hurt me like that again". On the charges against her, she said, "I'm not guilty of those". This charge carries a minimum 10 years of prison sentence and a maximum of life imprisonment. "Do you know what you've done to your girls and your grandchildren?' He pretty much just over and over said, 'I'm sorry, '" she said, adding that he continued to call her but she stopped answering. "I knew the truth, but I just wanted to hear it from him".

In an earlier interview Monday with CNN, Elizabeth's sister-in-law, Danielle Thomas, said Elizabeth may have thought she and Cummins were going on a one-day excursion and didn't anticipate leaving for more than a month and traveling more than 2,000 miles away.

Jill said he begged for her forgiveness and apologized during the phone call - but she said she can no longer say "I love you" to him. But he told me he was sorry. "But they know he did wrong too and they're standing by me 100 percent".


Elizabeth is now spending time with her family and a trauma team to help her cope and heal.

When asked if she hates him, she said, "No".

Jill told authorities that Tad filled his Cialis prescription only days before March 13, 2017, when he and Elizabeth left Tennesee. Barry said he offered Cummins work moving rocks to build a wall on the property and allowed them to stay in the cabin, for which Barry was the caretaker.

"Tad called me from jail". "I don't trust him anymore and we'll never have what we had before".

"Right now, she's somewhere where she can relax and be looked after by family and close friends and just take a break from everybody", Anthony Thomas said.

"If a person was looking for a teenager that could be easily influenced and easily convinced to do something they shouldn't do, I would say that she would be one that would attract that kind of person", he said. "And very jittery", her father said.
