She owned a passport in the name of Gina Carpio,
and told them that Shannon was her "stage name".
The friends are now horrified to discover that police will allege it
was really Scully funding their lavish outings from his prison cell with
the profits the couple allegedly made from child snuff films.

Scully is accused of making the films depicting the rape, torture and
murder of poor Filipino children he and Margallo allegedly lured with the
promise of food or money.
The 54-year-old Australian's alleged crimes are so dire the
Philippines is contemplating reintroducing the death penalty for him.
Scully has pleaded not guilty to the first six charges of up to 75
that police say involved 14 girls he allegedly molested and tortured.
Police say Scully filmed his depraved abuse of the children,
allegedly with the assistance of Margallo and another young woman.
They claim copies of the films were sold for up to $10,000 each to
paedophiles around the world.
Filipino investigators from the National Bureau of Investigation
(NBI) claim Scully has continued to operate his dark web child pornography
Philippines media reports have claimed that Margallo told NBI
officers she had remained in regular touch with Scully.
One of the people Margallo
fooled in Cebu City posted a warning after finding out her real identity.

One of Margallo's former friends in Cebu, who has now posted warnings
on Facebook about the accused child offender, told the Cebu Daily News
that Margallo regularly communicated with Scully.
She told Cebu City local Juliet Mejares
that Peter Scully was her partner and he owned his own business.
"It was a software kind of business and she said there are many
people working (in that industry) who earn big income," Mejares said.
"I haven't seen Peter personally. I just knew they talked over
applications like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Skype," she told
the Cebu Daily News.
Mejares has now posted on her Facebook page
photographs of Margallo with the warning, "please read and be aware
... Shannon Carpio her true name Liezyl Margallo Castana".
Margallo, who appeared in one of the most appalling child torture
films entitled Daisy's Destruction, has now joined Scully in a
separate cell at Lumbia City Jail.
And claims have been made that Scully continues to demand
"special treatment" in the prison, which is 15km outside the
Cagayan de Oro, in the southern Philippines island of Mindanao.
Scully's former lawyer Alejandra Jose Pallugna
has revealed Scully's list of demands in jail which include a mobile phone
and fresh beef, pork and chicken.
"In a sense, he's a demanding person," Pallugna
told Cebu Daily News.
"At first, he instructed my staff to bring him karnenorte (corned beef),
pork and beans, eggs and kilos of fresh pork.
"And then, he said it's hot inside his cell so he needs an electric

Jail officials denied the requests, but one of Scully's family
members had allegedly contacted a local ombudsman to complain about his
treatment in custody.
"Scully appears to be an intelligent man. I could say he was
well educated. He speaks and conveys his message very well and talks with
sense," Paullgna said.
"He looks normal. It's hard to believe that he's a
It was the fate of one alleged victim of Scully that has prompted
Filipino prosecutors to call for Scully's execution by firing squad.
Footage of the 5-year-old girl who Scully - assisted by Margallo - allegedly
raped and tortured reportedly made Filipino investigators cry when they
On the videos he allegedly sold to paedophiles around the world,
police say Scully also sexually abused a baby, and filmed his torture and
rape of young girls as he made them dig their own graves.
Filipino police claim that Scully also buried a 11-year-old under the
floor of a house he was renting after making a film of him raping her and
strangling her to death.
Capital punishment was outlawed in 1986 at the end of the brutal
Ferdinand Marcos regime.
But assisted by widespread poverty, the country has become a hub of a
billion-dollar, global child cybersex industry.
However, it has been reported that Scully is confident he could walk
free from jail.
Alejandra Pallugna said that much of the
physical evidence against him, including a computer, video camera and
memory card, had been destroyed in a fire at the Cagayan de Oro Hall of
"There's a great possibility that the cases against Scully will
be dismissed due to the fact that the physical evidence against him were
"Those things are necessary to prove that Scully really had a
hand in molesting and torturing the victims," he said.
"If Scully gets a good lawyer, there's really the chance that he
can go out of prison."
