Peter Scully is an Australian pedophile serving a life sentence after being arrested for charges ranging from human trafficking, rape and assault of underage girls, and the murder of an 11-year-old child that was found under one of his former residences.
Scully’s name has since become associated with Josh Duggar, a disgraced reality television star, who was arrested after authorities seized his computer hard drive, which contained an underage rape and torture video produced by Peter Scully.
The exhaustive manhunt for the wanted Australian fugitive Peter Scully ended when his home was raided by police in September 2014. The government seized Scully’s computer, video camera, memory cards, and hard drives.
Paul Hopkins, an Australian Federal Police officer involved in the manhunt, said that Scully was “the most depraved individual [he's] ever come across in 26 years of police.”
The Australian Federal Police tracked down Scully by recognizing his Aussie accent in the rape videos, despite his failed attempt to pixelate his own face.
It was ultimately Scully’s girlfriend, and former victim herself, Ann ‘Angel’ Alvarez, who became Peter's ultimate downfall.
Although initially helping Scully to abuse the two girls, Alvarez suddenly reconsidered when she saw the girls two days later, both girls wearing dog collars chained to the wall.
Scully had demanded that the two girls undress and kiss each other. He forced them to drink alcohol to help relax. Next came the harrowing abuse, torture, and sex acts that Peter inflicted on the two cousins while filming.
Angel would also help Scully during filming, mostly by holding a pillow over each girl’s mouth to silence their screaming.
12-year-old Rosie and her cousin survived the ordeal, but will never be the same. Rosie told media sources, “I hope I can forget when I grow up.”
Peter Scully initially fled to Manila from Australia in 2011 after he swindled 2.68 million dollars from twenty investors.
One of these investors, a former friend, lost $200,000, trusting the con man. This investor traced Scully to the Phillipines, but lost track of him after that.
The investigation into his scam started in 2009, Victoria finally laying 117 fraud and deception charges on Peter Scully in 2012. The court judge said that Scully “was prepared to push the boundaries of commercial morality.”
Scully was also involved in a real estate scam that targeted home buyers with credit problems.
The swindler became a wanted fugitive when he fled to the Philippines, taking along his “girlfriend”, a Malaysian teenage girl called ‘Ling’. Peter immediately pimped the teen out once they arrived in Manila and began selling her body for sex.
The teenager would be advertised on illegal escort forums where she would be rented by the hour. One customer remarked about Ling, “apparently anything goes for this girl for the right price.”
Another customer said, "I've gotta say, she was qutie [sic] a bit more attractive than I expected, but not nearly as passionate/lively/intimate or playful as her profile/the reviews had me believe."
Peter and Ling moved from Manila to the Cagayan de Oro on the island of Mindanao in 2011, where he started his next venture, the ‘No Limits Fun’ production company.
'Daisy’s Destruction' was one of the child rape and torture videos that Peter Scully recorded and sold; the video was eventually leaked online. Before it became widespread and available for anyone to download, Daisy’s Destruction was thought to be an urban legend, and many people didn’t actually believe it existed. The video however, is real, and those who have seen it, such as prosecuting attorney Ruby Malanog, could barely put into words how depraved its contents are.
In one interview, Malanog describes the video as, “the most devastating thing [he has] ever seen.”
The description of Daisy's Destruction, pulled from sources below, should be sufficient information to curb any curiosity seekers out there from searching for the actual video.
In the video, an 18-month-old baby (Daisy), is tied upside down by her feet. One of Peter’s girlfriends, and possibly Scully himself, can be seen naked, wearing masks to cover their faces. The baby girl is sexually assaulted, beaten, whipped, and tortured with sex toys.
Detectives who watched the video, described it as horrid , saying, it is, “the worst we have encountered in our years campaigning against child pornography.”
Peter Scully was an active member of many dark web forums where he conducted the business of selling his homemade videos at the right price.
Using pseudonyms, such as Peter Riddell and Peter Russell, Scully would charge viewers $10,000 or more to watch these disgusting videos. His business was strong and there was always someone willing to pay the high price of admission.
Scully would charge a premium for live-streamed watching. Unfortunately, Peter Scully isn't the only one profiting from torturing children online.
One website known as, ‘Hurt 2 The Core’, bragged about its 15,000 daily downloads and even rewarded its pedophilic members that uploaded their own content by giving them access to a “Producer’s Lounge.”
A pervert like Peter Scully, who was found to be a member of the website's Producer’s Lounge, had access to the more depraved and offensive content, not available for regular members.
Peter Scully, with the help of his girlfriends, would lure children back to his home with the promise of food, a commodity not all children have in the poorer Filipino neighborhoods.
Once the children entered the home, they would tie them up, beat, and force them to consume a large amount of alcohol, then while filming, the participants would brutally rape and torture their helpless victims.
This type of pornography and rape videos are more widely known as hurtcore, which differs from BDSM, in that the victims are not willing to take part and often leave injured, or even worse, they die.
In one of these live-streamed videos, Scully killed a child. The child’s name has never been made public, but detectives and media refer to her as ‘Cindy’. Cindy was 11 when she was being raped and tortured at the hands of Peter Scully.
Scully’s former partner claimed that Scully “accidentally” killed the child, and then buried her remains under his apartment to get rid of the body.
Cindy’s remains were found underneath a home in Malaybalay, Bukidnon in the Villa Cortio subdivision of Surigao del Norte.
Peter Scully will hopefully spend the rest of his life in prison.
He was charged with one count of human trafficking, and five counts of rape by the sexual assault of underage girls.
Scully’s crimes were so repulsive that the Philippine government entertained the idea of reestablishing the country’s death penalty, abolished a decade earlier, solely for his crimes.
During his sentencing, Peter and another co-accused man, laughed and joked in front of media.
Scully pled not guilty and even contested his accusations, forcing the victims of his depraved sex acts to testify and relive the tragedy they were desperately trying to forget.
Peter Scully is portraying himself as the victim, claiming that a priest had molested him when he was a child living in Victoria. Few people believe, or care, about his claims, and for the most part the public wants to get rid of the pervert once and for all.
Scully spends his days in isolation, where he is currently locked up at the Cagayan de Oro City Jail, in the Philippines.
