Mark J. Newton and Peter Truong

Truong and Newton
Crimes: Pedophile, Child Pornography

Mark J. Newton and his boyfriend Peter Truong, originally of Queensland, Australia, are filthy, disgusting pedophiles. There’s no wrapping it up to make it pretty. They were both active members of the Boy Lovers network, an international child porn syndicate. They made and shared hardcore child pornography — images and videos — for their fellow members’ entertainment. Tragically, they also shared their adopted son.

Mark J. Newton and Peter Truong had managed to get their hands on an infant boy in 2005. They paid a Russian woman to be their surrogate for $8,000. According to them Mark J. Newton was the biological father.

“We decided that we would have a child, that it was time for us to have a family. We wanted to experience the joys of fatherhood,” Peter Truong said in a media interview. Riiight.

Little did the surrogate mother know when she handed over her 5-day-old baby that she was placing him in the care of evil, sick hellbeasts.

Being pedophiles, Mark J. Newton and Peter Truong didn’t want a son for any other purpose than sexual exploitation. Within days — DAYS — of gaining custody of the infant, the evil pair of pedos began sexually abusing their victim.

When the infant was less than 2 weeks old, Peter Truong videotaped Mark J. Newton performing a sex act on him.

The perverted pair lived with their “son” in Los Angeles and in Queensland. Over the next 6 years they travelled around the world, offering the little guy to at least 8 other pedophiles for sex. They recorded the sexual abuse and uploaded their movies to the Boy Lovers Network.

I guess the evil pervs made enough money from their child porn that they could afford to live and travel around the globe without any legitimate means of income.

Sadly, Mark J. Newton and Peter Truong raised that little boy to believe that sex with adults was normal and natural. They also taught him to lie about it if he was ever questioned by authority figures.

The idyllic pedo life that Mark J. Newton and Peter Truong led began to go wrong in August 2011. A fellow pedo from New Zealand was arrested and his computer drives were confiscated. Authorities found images of the Newton/Truong family on an outing. The images weren’t sexual, but they were “off”.

“On examination of the drives, they located some of the images – whilst they were not of a nature that would constitute a criminal offence, to the trained eye … the images were not what you would see as a traditional family snap,’’ said Detective Inspector Jon Rouse, head of Queensland police Taskforce Argos.

Taskforce Argos specifically targets pedophiles, so Detective Inspector Rouse knows whereof he speaks.

“The pictures were kind of modeling shots, it looked wrong to us,” said Detective Inspector Rouse in a TV interview.

Mark J. Newton and Peter Truong and sonTaskforce Argos checked out Newton and Truong’s chat logs and uncovered communications with 3 known pedophiles. The boy had even been taken for “visits” with the men in the U.S., New Zealand and Germany.

While the POS pedos were in the U.S. with their boy, Queensland police searched their Cairns home. They found evidence to support their suspicions, but not enough to prosecute the men. A lot of the material had been encrypted on computer drives and the police were unable to figure out the passwords.

Taskforce Argos then contacted U.S. authorities about their investigation and conclusions, and sent them all of the evidence, including encrypted hard drives.

The US Postal Inspection Service was already investigating the Boy Lover network, and Investigator Brian Bone recognized the photos of the boy as the same child who featured in child porn movies and images uncovered in their investigations.

“Personally I think this is probably (one of) the worst (pedophile) rings.. if not the worst ring I’ve ever heard of,’’ Investigator Brian Bone said.

Mark J. Newton and Peter Truong’s Los Angeles home was raided by police in October 2011. The child was taken into care and placed with a family.

Not surprisingly, Mark J. Newton and Peter Truong bleated long and loud that they’d been targeted because they were homosexual. Hah!

Detective Inspector Rouse responded to that accusation, “If you’re harming a child – I don’t care what your gender is – we will take action. Our interest is the child, not your sexual preference.”

The pedo pervs were arrested in February 2012. When faced with the evidence provided by Taskforce Argos, Peter Truong caved and gave the American investigators the passwords to the computer drives.

No big surprise — the computers were full of child porn produced over a matter of years, much of it featuring their adopted son.

“The evidence told us effectively that these two men are intrinsically linked with child sex offenders, with a preference for young boys, going back a long way and they have travelled the world and sexually exploited that young boy,” Detective Inspector Rouse said.

“These men submitted this young child to some of the most heinous acts of exploitation that this office has ever seen,” Indiana U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett had said when the monsters were brought to court.

Peter Truong, 36, pled guilty to charges of conspiring to sexually exploit a child and possessing child pornography. He is still awaiting sentencing.

‘‘Being a father was an honour and a privilege that amounted to the best six years of my life,’’ Mark J. Newton told the court. Riiiight. What a father he was!

U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker responded to him saying, “Words don’t help … What can be said? What can be done to erase some of the horror of this?”

What indeed?

On June 28, 2013, in District Court in Indianapolis, Mark J. Newton, 42, was sentenced to 40 years in prison for conspiracy to sexually exploit a minor and conspiracy to possess child pornography. He was also ordered to pay $400,000 in restitution to the child.

US District Judge Sarah Evans Barker said the disgusting pair of pedophiles deserves a much harsher punishment but were tried in district court to avoid subjecting a jury to those repulsive child pornography movies and images.

The investigation into Newton and Truong also led to the arrest of other pedophiles. Yay! Here’s hoping they catch them all!

I shall keep readers posted about Peter Truong’s sentence (reminders are welcome). I hope his sentence is the maximum.

I also hope that both Peter Truong and Mark J. Newton suffer mightily for their deviant deeds. But mostly I hope that that little boy, and all the other young victims, can find safety, love, and happiness for the rest of their lives.

Peter Truong has been sentenced to 30 years in prison. The judge had taken into consideration his willingness to lead authorities to other pedophiles as well as his personal history as a victim of childhood abuse.

    I hope the authorities track down each and every member of that Boy Lover network and throw their disgusting asses into prison. The idea that these two made a living off of molesting their boy and renting him out to other pedophiles makes me want to vomit.

  2. moodymagic says:

    These 2 bastards should be neutered with a dull knife and thrown into the general population and let Bubba and his boys sort it out. I also hope as well that they find every last member of this despicable network. Burn in hell bastards.

    • 2cute says:

      Neutered with acid, moodymagic, and that will change their sexuality. I really hope that little boy has a good home now and knows that his other daddies did terrible things they should never have done.

  3. MsM says:

    This seriously pisses me off – not just for the poor little boys abused but for all those gay people out there who’ve finally won the right to marry. These two assholes just made their continued fight for equality twice as hard. I think Moody has the right idea. Stake ’em down and poor acid on their crotches then leave them be.

    • Zulia says:

      I personally don’t believe they were gay, I think they bonded because they were both pedophiles. They probably acted gay in order to adopt a child. Obviously they are not attracted to women because they’re only attracted to little boys! Fucking sick bastards.

      • Fred says:

        That makes them guy!!! Idiot!

        Of course the are gay! Most gays are closet pedos!

        I hope these two burn in hell and in the meantime get beaten to death in jail.

        • Scrappy says:

          Sexual orientation and pedophilia are NOT linked. How many pedos out there victimize heterosexually? Does that mean that most hetero people are closet pedos. You are an absolute idiot…

        • Fred Is A Cunt says:

          Hi Fred,
          You are a cunt. A very dumb cunt. An illiterate, dumb cunt.

          • awesomeblossom says:

            Fred is probably a hetero which means he’s a closet hetero pedophile. Almost all heteros are that way inclined you know. Nobody’s daughter is safe around the likes of Fred. Stupid git.

        • SB_Australia says:

          Fred, you’re a dick head. You are clearly not very intelligent of you would know that homosexuality & pedophilia aren’t linked.

  4. Lynda says:

    It is so awful to think of what that poor little boy went through at the hands of his “parent’s”. I can only hope that he somehow overcomes the horrid start to his life and lives a happy normal life. It’s also horrifying to think that this sort of thing goes on all the time. Parents who pimp out their own children for others and their own sexual gratification. Anyone can have a child and there are so many sicko’s out there. I certainly don’t know how the police can watch those “movies” but someone has to do to catch those pervs.

  5. awesomeblossom says:

    The thought of what that boy was put through makes me want to cry. I hope these two bastards are put into gen pop so they can be dealt with properly.

  6. Bengalpuss says:

    Sick Fucking pigs. No doubt that poor boy will be emotionally screwed up, thanks to these two cunts. They need to be placed in a cell with a well endowed bubba, and subjected to bubba’s arse treatment on a nightly basis!!!

  7. Stephanie says:

    that boy grew up thinking it is normal. i believe its too late for him, such young age. he might grow up and do the same. its all he knows.
    is there someone out there who had a passion for murdering? please do the world a favour and make hunting down and murdering pedophiles your hobby. cleanse the streets. i dont even think police would bother arrest, since your doing everybody a favour.
    i hate pedophiles and child abusers with all my heart. they deserve the worse torture ever, they are unworthy of life.

  8. scrappy says:

    Like Stephanie, I fear for this child to ever have a normal sex life. He has been developmentally damaged.

    Beyond the tragedy of a child forever twisted is the fact that these pedos have just proven what every homophobe suspected…homos want kids so they can molest them. They must have set back gay male couples fifty years at least.

    I pray the little guy can get the help that fixes this repulsive turn in his life.

  9. Iknewthem says:

    Any news on the sentencing for Peter Truong? I’ve tried searching but am coming up with nothing …

  10. Joeythelemur says:

    Truong gets 30 years.

  11. queen says:

    Send them to NZ, Death penalty here in prison itself, for pedaefiles. That poor kid, hope he can be reprogramed sufficiently, as innocence is lost

  12. BENGALPUSS says:

    The cunt should of been stuck in front of a firing squad, and analy raped with a massive cucumber. I know, i need to seek help with my sadistic thoughts, but i don’t give a shite.

  13. Severence says:

    Very good documentary about the case here:

  14. Marietta says:

    I hate these 2 monsters with all my heart. I think it is definitely the worse crime have heard of since Adam was just a baby. First his useless mother sells him off and then he is subjected to horrific torture by these 2 sadists. They should be castrated and given life without parole. In that jail time they should be beaten, stabbed, punched, kicked and harassed to death. No one should ever harm a child. Especially NOT from infancy :(

  15. KXG says:

    these two shitbags deserve to be shipped back to australia and have their arms and legs broken before being dumped a couple of hundred miles out into the outback to hopefully die of being mauled by the wildlife. it’s bad enough so many homophobes automatically equate being gay with being a pedophile, but these sickfucks have to perpetuate the vicious stereotype. they look like fucking pervs and i hope whoever truong ends up being a prison bitch for will do us all a favor and cut that thing off his face and fix those almost novelty level buckteeth he’s got by knocking them all out for him. dude looks like he could floss with an elevator cable.

  16. John Muhleisen says:

    Neither of the men are the boys biological father, they lied about having him through surrogacy. His mother had an unwanted pregnancy and she sold him to them and they bought him from her for 8,000 dollars. Watch the documentary boy with the henna tattoo, it explains it fully.

  17. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Disgusting and Evil.

    Shows the Need for the Commonwealth Government in Canberra to have
    the Death Penalty for Child Abuse by Federal Statute and also to Allow
    the Individual States of the Commonwealth of Australia to have the Death Penalty for Child Abuse as Well

  18. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    All States in the United States of America should Adopt the Death Penalty for Child Abuse as Well as by Federal Law
