31 year old female poses as teen boy, arrested for seducing teen girl

Watch out, Ohio!

Oh no, Ohio!

In Ohio, a 31 year old female has been arrested and charged with attempted sex with a minor after posing as a 14 year old boy. The two were holed up in a hotel room for a few days before the 16 year old girl ran away and reported the older woman to the police.

From CBSnews: “Dye, a petite woman who stands at 4 feet 11 inches, went by the alias “Matt Abrams” when pursuing the young girl. She made her boyish look more believable when she reportedly cut her hair into a short, androgynous style, said CBS affiliate WKRC.

Police started an investigation after the teenage girl fled from a hotel in June when she discovered that Dye was really a woman – and not the teenage boy she appeared to be. “They were boyfriend-girlfriend,” reported Sgt. Bob Marchiny to the Dayton Daily News. “(Dye) looks just like a boy.”

From the NY Daily News: “Police started to investigate Dye, who is 4-feet-11, shorter than her 5-foot-5 victim, after the girl ran away from a hotel the two had been living in for three days. he girl never realized Dye was a woman. Dye, who was arrested on June 30, admitted she was impersonating a boy. She has no local criminal record. The case was sent to a grand jury after a pretrial hearing in Warren County Court. Dye remained in Warren County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

Police said they are looking to see if there are any other victims.”

What a horrible story all around… The poor girl.

    why did CBS make this a national story? i’m worried that it will fuel discrimination and hate crimes against transgendered folks.

  • I think the simple answer is sensationalism and selling a story in an era of struggling journalism, but yes, I agree. It’s unfortunate. At least they could start such a discussion, but, of course, they didn’t.
