Most serial killers have Taurus as their star sign, expert says

Serial killers have always struck fear in our society. And it's really no wonder given the heinous crimes they have proven themselves capable of. And yet so many of us have such an intense fascination for them.

Notorious murderers such as Charles Manson and Ted Bundy have been the inspiration for many in-depth documentaries and Hollywood blockbusters simply because viewers are so curious about their lives, upbringings, and, of course, their reasons for committing such calculated murders.

Take a look at the official trailer for Netflix's new true-crime series The Confession Killer, based on the murders of Henry Lee Lucas:

Serial killers have been the focus of many studies covering various aspects of their lives and crimes. But few have delved into any link between serial killers and their zodiac sign, with astrology widely considered to be a pseudoscience.

However, one British author, David Jester, has spent two years researching the zodiac signs of some of the most notorious killers in history.

Take a look at the teaser trailer for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, starring Zac Efron as Ted Bundy: 

Per The Mirror, Jester's book, The Clinic, found that more killers on his list were Taureans - born between April 20 and May 20 - than any other zodiac sign. Robert Black, who became known as the child snatcher, is an example of a Taurean serial killer.

He also discovered that the most common serial killer birthdays were April 24 and February 18.

There are, of course, prolific killers of all star signs:
