A 50-year-old perverted teacher in Tennessee was fired from his job after kissing a 15-year-old student, Elizabeth Thomas. He then took off with Thomas in March and that sparked a nation wide manhunt.
The two were found in a commune in Northern California, 120 miles South of Oregon. He is in custody in California, awaiting extradition to Tennessee. He is facing charges of sexual contact with a minor and aggravated kidnapping.
There were some trolls that tried to claim the 15-year-old girl went willingly. However, her sister says the morning before Thomas took off with her, Elizabeth Thomas told her to call cops if she did not return home by 6 PM.
Moreover, “The Tennessean” reported Cummins would often pick Elizabeth up at home and take her out to eat and threatened that if she told anyone what what going on, that she would get in trouble at school.
