The Worst Video on the Internet: A Film about the Heinous Crimes of Child Abuse Committed by an Australian Pedophile and His Filipina ‘Mistress’Read Now
A grotesque video entitled ‘Daisy’s Destruction’ became a sort of urban legend online – and was said to feature unimaginable scenes of horror as adults tortured and raped a child. Daisy’s Destruction is real, and its creator could now face the life imprisonment because of it.
Daisy’s destruction, which has been widely discussed on different forums and has been called “the worst” the internet had to offer, featured a young child, even a toddler, suffering such horrifying abuse and sexual assault. In the video directed by Peter Scully, a baby girl was tortured by a masked man and woman.
Peter, a father of two, fled from Melbourne to Manila in 2011 after being under investigation for defrauding millions of dollars from investors in an investment scheme. It was in the Philippines that he established his lucrative business of recording lewd actions of minors.
The film, created in 2012, consisted of a series of 3-4 videos wherein a masked girl tortured toddlers aged 18 months to 4 years of age in the most extreme ways possible. The masked girl was the 19-year-old girlfriend of Peter, a former prostitute.
His other girlfriend, Liezyl Margallo, was the one who was actually seen to commit inhumane and gruesome acts. She was referred to as the “mistress” of the victims in the introductory scene of the videos. The introductory text was: “Come see a child’s mental ruin, her innocence lost, used as a tool, she’ll learn how to please her mistress, her body will be ravaged, her dignity stolen.”
After Peter’s arrest, Liezyl became a sex escort—a tourist guide to foreigners and have sex with them in exchange for money. She would eventually have 16 pending arrest warrants in Cagayan de Oro City for luring female street children, forcing them to perform sexual acts, torturing them, and even killing one of them—all while being recorded.
One of the girls that were tortured was named Daisy; hence, the title of the film. It was uploaded on a pedophile website called “Hurtcore” wherein users pay up to $10,000 to watch videos of violent abuse and torture being done on children. Those pedophiles who upload material of their own had access to the “Producer’s Lounge”, which had the most offensive material. Peter was among those creators.
The horrifying video showed a baby girl being tied upside down by her feet, sexually assaulted, and beaten. She was even whipped and assaulted with sex toys by Peter Scully’s girlfriend, as well as dripping hot wax on Daisy’s private parts.
Aside from Daisy, there were two other victims: Liza, 12 years old; and Cindy, 11 years old. The parents of the two victims gave them away to Peter because of a promise of sustenance and better living conditions. Each video ran for almost 10 minutes.
Peter Scully sought the help of one of his girlfriends, Carme Ann Alvarez, to recruit some street kids. Why street kids? It’s because, for him, no one would blink an eye should those street kids, particularly orphans, go missing especially in a country like the Philippines. Alvarez was instructed to get kids aged 9 and 12 years specifically, as those were the type to be easily lured by the promise of food.
Two kids, Rozy and her cousin, were fed then asked to strip for the camera as Peter took pictures and recorded a video. The two girls were even asked to perform sex acts on one another. Those videos ended up being uploaded on the Dark Web and sold to various pedophiles. He, then, told those girls to dig two graves and told them they would each be buried in them.
Alvarez found the girls tied with dog collars, and they told her that Peter had been hurting them. It took 5 days for Alvarez to feel pity towards the girls, leading her to free them. It was because of this that led to the capture of Peter as the girls went to the police after being set free. The police were able to capture Alvarez, but Scully was able to flee. She confessed to being a part of the tortures and abuses suffered by other girls.
When Scully fled, he was able to bring Daisy and other girls with him so he could continue with his “Daisy Destruction” videos. Eventually, Daisy and Liza were found to be alive, as well as the other remaining victims. However, Cindy was not as lucky, as her body was discovered in the same grave she was forced to dig for herself in Scully’s apartment in Surigao City. According to one of Scully’s girlfriends, Leizyl, he recorded how he murdered Cindy and even sold the video. Liezyl was the one that came forward and helped the police to determine where Cindy was buried.
Cindy, who was allegedly molested and tortured by Scully in 2012, was entrusted by her guardian to Liezyl after being promised that she will be well-take care of and sent to school. Clearly, that was not the case, as the child became a slave, treated like a dog, and videotaped while being tortured. A bolo was even inserted into her butt. She died due to strangulation and internal bleeding. Her remains were covered in cement near the house being rented by Scully.
The Interpol noticed that one of the girls on the video was Visayan-speaking as they would exclaim “agay” (ouch) while being maltreated. A Filipino member of Interpol noticed this; thus, they were able to pinpoint the crime to the Philippines.
Scully was arrested in Malaybalay, Bukidnon, and was jailed in Cagayan de Oro City. When Peter was asked why he did those crimes, he said, “What I’m looking for, is the reason for it, and what drove me to it.” Hailing from Australia, he claims to not be this evil back home. During his first few months in the Philippines, he was just a regular man. He said he was not hungry for killing or torturing the girls, and even he, himself, was confused with everything that happened. When asked if he ever felt remorse, he even joked and said, “That’s a good question, very good question, well done.”
While in prison in the Philippines, talks of bringing back the death penalty arose due to the heinous crimes that Peter committed, but he got lucky as all physical evidence of his crimes were burnt in a fire. In 2018, he was convicted of only one count of human trafficking and five counts of rape. He was able to escape capital punishment as a bill in the Philippines excluded rape from being a capital-punishment crime.
He is currently serving life in prison in Australia.
“It was too much. They are really just some people who are not afraid of God. Children were treated like dolls. They were tortured and exposed to too much pain. Anyone who does that is not normal. I could not help but cry when I saw the video,” said lawyer Janet Francisco, head of the NBI Anti-Human Trafficking Division.
If you’re curious about the “Daisy’s Destruction” video and want to find it, don’t, as copies of it are no longer available—or extremely hard to find. For your sanity’s sake.
