It looks like there’s a pattern of serial killers being born under the Taurus zodiac sign.

A study by British author David Jester compared the astrological signs of well-known serial killers and discovered that a majority of them are Taurus, according to The Mirror.

The outlet described Taurus as being “devoted, patient and hard-working, traits which can make for a great personality in someone who is stable and good-natured, and an evil manipulator in someone who is not.”

Jester conducted the original research for his thriller The Clinic, which was released in 2018. He spent two years studying zodiac signs of some of the most notorious serial killers both in the U.K. and elsewhere. His research found that, over any other star sign, the bulk of the killers on his list were Taureans, born between April 20 and May 20.

Now, the Mirror has done a round-up of serial killers’ astrological signs and found that among the Taureans are: “H. H. Holmes, America’s first modern serial killer; Michael Ryan, the man behind the Hungerford Massacre; David Copeland the London Nail Bomber; the Canadian child killer Karla Homolka; cannibal Albert Fish, the ‘Werewolf of Wysteria’; Levi Bellfield the British child killer and rapist” in addition to others.

Jester also found that April 24 and Feb. 19 are two days out of the year on which most killers were born.

In other words, keep a close eye on your Taurus friends.
