Peter Gerard Scully (born 13 January 1963) is an Australian child molester and pedophile accused of the murder of a 12-year-old girl, and of the torture and sexual abuse of at least eight girls, including an 18-month-old infant.
In 2011, Scully fled Melbourne, Australia to the Philippines after being accused of multiple fraud offenses. From the southern Philippines island of Mindanao, he is alleged to have ran an international pedophile ring and offered live pay-per-view video streams of children being tortured and sexually abused on the deep web.
In February 2015, Scully was arrested in his rented house in Malaybalay City after investigators discovered the remains of a teenage girl buried under an apartment he previously rented. He allegedly strangled her to death according to police who were led to the apartment by Scully's partner, a 17-year-old Filipino girl, who was also a prior victim of his abuse.
Philippine authorities described the case as horrific and the worst they had ever seen.
