Salisbury woman charged with cyberstalking, making harassing phone calls

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - A Salisbury woman is facing charges of making harassing phone calls and cyberstalking in Wake County.

Rebecca Bailey Dye, 63, was booked into the Rowan Detention Center on Thursday morning just after 1:00 a.m. Bond was set at $5000. Captain John Sifford said the charges are from Wake County, but were served on Dye in Rowan County.

Few details are available yet on the case, but investigators say more information on the case should be available later Thursday.

On her Facebook page, Dye has several posts about a man named James Dye, who appears to be her ex-husband based on comments. In the posts, she refers to Dye as a "pervert," "pedophile," "racist," and "animal abuser."

Dye also has several posts about the Erica Parsons case in which she blames local law enforcement, judges and the Department of Social Services for ignoring the plight of Erica Parsons.

A search of prison records shows that Rebecca Dye was charged in 2004 and 2005 with making harassing and threatening phone calls in Guilford County. She was convicted on similar charges in 2012 and given a 36-month suspended sentence.

In August 1998, Rebecca Dye was convicted in a jury trial on charges of domestic criminal trespass. That trial was based on an incident from May 1997 in which Rebecca Dye visited the home shared by her ex-husband, Jim Dye, and the couple's son.  Rebecca Dye was ordered to stay away from the house.

Court records show that Rebecca Dye was "screaming and cursing in a hysterical manner," in July 1996, and then in May 1997, she came back to the house "screaming and using profanity against him (her ex-husband)and other members of his family."

Rebecca Dye appealed that decision, and in July, 2000, the judgment was vacated.

Salisbury Police have charged Dye numerous times, including a disorderly conduct charge in 2003, second degree trespassing in 2004, harassing and threatening phone calls in 2005 and 2006, and first degree trespassing in 2007.
