A candle burned on the stoop of the family's single-family home in the city's Dorchester section Tuesday, and the word "Peace" was written in chalk on the front walk.
It just so happens that "peace" converts to 16 5 1 3 5, that the addition of 16, 3, and 5 yields 24, i.e. 6, and that the addition of the other 5 and the 1 also yields 6. So, the actual message might have been "66," i.e. 6x11, two of Satanism's most special numbers.
