Teen Girl's "Boyfriend" Was Woman, 31

JULY 7--A 31-year-old Ohio woman who posed as a teenage boy is facing felony charges after cops discovered that she was engaged in an illicit sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl who was unaware of the bizarre impersonation scheme.

Patricia Dye, 31, is being held in a Warren County lockup following her arrest last week (Dye is pictured the mug shot at left). Police began probing Dye after locating the teenager after she ran away from home. When found, the girl "was with a male subject who was in fact a 31-year-old female," according to a Springboro Police Department report.

Dye, posing as a 14-year-old, used the aliases "Matt Abrams" and "Matt Lewis," and lived in a motel. A second girl told cops that she dated Nye for about a week, and that "she knew Dye as a male and not a female." It is unclear how Dye--who has been charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, among other counts--met the teenagers.

A police report lists Dye as 4' 11" and 120 pounds, and her occupation as "unknown." She is currently being held in lieu of $100,000 bond. (5 pages)

If she were a man, chasing and pawing a 16 year old girl, she'd be in state prison for years, getting beaten and raped. No glass ceiling here I guess.
