A new 20/20 interview with more details on the case will air Friday at 9 p.m. on ABC.

A preview of the two-hour program features ABC correspondent Eva Pilgrim, who says new information will be released about the events that took place when Thomas was kidnapped.

The new interview comes about three years after the perverted teacher was jailed for 20 years after being confronted in court by Thomas, who he was on the run with when he was just 15.

Cummins sparked a nationwide manhunt when he disappeared with his teenage victim for 38 days in 2017.

The new 20/20 will delve deeper into the events leading up to the teen’s disappearance, never-before-released evidence and the charges against Cummins, the LaughingPlace explains.

The program will feature new interviews with “key investigators and prosecutors who brought Cummins to justice, including Special Agent Sterling Wall, the lead FBI agent in the case; Special Agent Tyler Sells of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation; Detective Marcus Albright, the lead investigator from the Maury County, Tennessee Sheriff’s Office; and Sara Beth Myers, the lead federal prosecutor on the case.”

Also sharing never-before-seen video clips of Cummins’ interrogation with authorities and an interview with his former wife, Jill.

Other people interviewed on the show include Cummins and Thomas’ family members.

Also expected to be introduced are Thomas’ family attorney Jason Whatley, District Attorney Brent Cooper and Griffin Barry, the man whose tip led to Cummins’ arrest.

For those who can’t watch today’s program, the 20/20 interview will be available on Hulu starting December 3.

“Disgusting Criminals”

Thomas previously told authorities that between March 13 and April 20, she and Cummins “had sex every day as they traveled from state to state posing as husband and wife.”

In an emotional statement as Cummins appeared in court, she revealed the trauma she suffered and branded him a “sick, disgusting criminal.”

“You exploited a vulnerable girl and robbed her of her childhood,” she said.

“In the last two years, I’ve picked myself up bit by bit and proved to myself that I’m much, much stronger than you made me believe.

“The effects have been devastating and lasting, and it’s not over yet. They are still an ongoing struggle that I experience every day and sometimes even moment at a time in my life.

“What you did to me is indescribable. I don’t know if any words could ever express exactly how much pain I have suffered and continue to suffer because of you.

“I believe Mr Cummins’ sentence should be 38 years in prison – one year for every day he kept me away from my family.”

Her testimony was read in federal court in Nashville after she burst into tears.

Also in her statement, quoted by NBC, Thomas said, “He made a choice to be a sexual predator.

“He chose to belittle, humiliate and abuse me. I have no doubt that if Mr. Cummins had never been caught, he would have ended up throwing me away like a piece of trash and making another stunning young woman his next chosen victim.

“Tad Cummins is a sick, disgusting criminal.”

Cummins was arrested in April 2017 and the then 15-year-old girl was found safe in a remote cabin in Northern California.

They traveled approximately 1,900 miles from the girl’s hometown of Culleoka, Tennessee.

In 2019 he was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
