Before kidnapping a 15-year-old female student and taking her on a 2,500-mile cross-country journey that ended Thursday, court records show teacher Tad Cummins took guns, money and his wife’s car.
Questioning his relationship with the girl, he had just been suspended from teaching and police were zeroing in on him.
The records say he took out a loan for $4,500. The teacher then took the money and two handguns and wrote a note to his wife saying he needed to go to Virginia Beach or the D.C. area to clear his head.
Police say he picked up the student in Columbia, Tennessee, in his wife’s white Nissan Rogue on the morning of March 13, instead of going to the beach. The actions set in motion a six-week police manhunt.
