An author has discovered that the majority of the most prolific serial killers in modern history are that of a certain star sign - specifically Taureans.
Criminologists have known that murderers generally tend to share similar personality traits, but it turns out that it may also prove that there's some truth in astrology too.
British author David Jester has spent two years looking into zodiac signs of the most notorious killers in the UK and US.
Jester's new thriller The Clinic is out this week, and it interestingly found that more killers on his list were born a Taurus - between 20 April and 20 May.
Two other stand out dates were 24 April and 18 February - with most killers born on these days.
Obviously, the jury is out on whether star signs can really give an insight in to your personality or whether it's all a load of shite, but every Taurean I've met have had a bit of a funny side.
Some of the most famous ones include the following:
Other prolific killers however, weren't Taureans. Fred West, for example was a Libran. Peter Sutcliffe, aka The Yorkshire Ripper killed prostitutes in 1970s England because of what was described as a 'severe distaste for women' - he was a Gemini. They are known to adapt to their social circle.
Sagittarians are known for their 'free spirit' - famous killers of this star sign include Rose West, Ted Bundy and Dennis Nilsen, meaning there may or may not be any correlation between star sign and murderous tendencies.
