The original story broke on the 21st/22nd October, some 64 days prior to Christmas. 64 is indeed eight squared and the number of squares on the chess board - the latter, in some quarters, being regarded as an important freemasonic (and well before) symbol; good/evil, black/white etc. Boxing Day there was no Scottish Sun (The NOTW sister newspaper), it being a Sunday, however on the Monday we were treated to the banner headline as imaged below, the entire family dressed in black and white.

We touched on a character James Ross back in early November via the comments. He was the chap apparently held captive in Portugal over a drug debt, his kidnappers cutting of various body parts, including his privates and allegedly posted them to other, presumably rival, gangsters as some sort of underworld message. It was all related to Osiris, an Egyptian Sun-God, who's parts too were dismembered, a replacement penis being formed with gold. Later that month, the chap appeared on the front page of the News of the World. I could not get a copy picture due to copyright however noted in the comment section of Snowball effect :
Today's Scottish News of the World front page headline :I HAVE BEEN TO HELL. Picture of Lisbon torture victim, surname Ross, from Wick. He got body parts chopped off and seemingly distributed as a warning (see Osiris). As such there is a close up of his hand on the front page, he has one digit missing, thus providing the classic pyramid /Spock pose provided and discussed in aferrismoon's last post. Ross as in the terrorist Loch Lomond. Wick as in light/candle/mining ?
