Slye sometimes used the name, Nicole Grace Smith, and said he was a 21-year-old girl from Manchester, New Hampshire.
In the past, Slye convinced teens to send him pictures and tried to “lure one of the wrestlers to meet him at the Topsfield Fair,” police said.READ MORE: 582 At Massachusetts Schools Test Positive For COVID-19 In Last 2 Weeks
A statement from the MIAA read, in part: “In an effort to ensure the safety of our students, we wanted to pass along some critical information regarding a person trying to contact local athletes on Facebook and attempting to engage with them at high school sporting events.”
“Please be proactive as Mr. Slye is described as a computer genius and while today he lurks under ‘Nicole Grace Smith’, tomorrow it could be another alias,” the statement continued.
Police said detectives spoke to Slye on October 23 and he admitted to using the alias to obtain pictures and to contacting wrestlers at Windham High School.MORE NEWS: Friday Marks First Anniversary Of Boston Biogen Conference Super Spreader Event
