CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Warren County woman who police said was posing as a boy to lure young girls is again embroiled in accusations.

A second teenage victim now says she too believed Patricia Dye, 31, was really a teenage boy after an incredible acting job.

"It infuriates me," said the teen's soon-to-be stepmother, who asked not to be identified. "To me it is very sick."

The woman claimed that for nearly a year, the 16-year-old girl was dating whom she thought was a 14-year-old boy named Matt Abrams.

"They referred to each other as boyfriend and girlfriend," the woman explained.

But "he" was really "she," and a far cry from "Matt's" so-called teen status. "She" was nearly double the victim's age and is 31-year-old Patricia Dye.

The teen's parents called police after seeing Dye's mug shot on the news last week for a similar case. Dye was arrested on one count of corruption of a minor, one count of importuning and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after luring a 16-year-old Springboro girl.

The two met on MySpace and would chat on Facebook and text message. And before going on dates, "Matt" had to meet her parents.

"He had to come up and meet us before she was allowed to leave," the woman said. "Stood in my living room, shook my fiance's hand, and passed as a boy."

She said her stepdaughter even went to church with Dye's family. Dye's father would drive them from the family's apartment at a Franklin motel.

"The father pretended to be the grandfather and kept referring to his daughter as Matt," the woman said.

Dye's mother is defending her daughter.

"I know my daughter," Dorothy Dye said. "More better than what anybody else does, she's not like that. So why do you think that the police are saying she impersonated a boy? Hey, she always has done that. My God, there's a lot of girls always, uh, always pose, you know as a guy."

Dye said she still cannot believe her daughter Patricia was led away in handcuffs.

"My husband had seen 'em when they put the handcuffs on her," said Dorothy Dye.  "'What are you doing?' my husband said."

Dorothy Dye said that her daughter has always dressed like a tomboy.

"She had done that into the school and nothing was done," she said. "There is nothing wrong with women, young kids, wearing Levi pants, absolutely not."

Dye said her daughter's boyish mannerisms never seemed abnormal to her.

"You know, like when two girls you know, touch one another, people always makes it out that they're lesbian and that's not true, my daughter is not a lesbian," Dye said.

This second family says Dye also wanted their daughter to run away to Tennessee, but said she was strong enough not to do it.

Middletown Police said because their relationship never went beyond kissing, no new charges have been filed.
