The Zodiac Killer, a serial killer who terrorized Northern California in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, may or may not have taken his name from the astronomical or astrological Zodiac. It was either that or a watch brand.
The FBI actually does have a profiling system that takes into account a person’s Zodiac sign, whether or not the killer after the same name was concerned with celestial meanings.
The Zodiac Killer, who was never caught, was thought to be either a Sagittarius (Arthur Leigh Allen) or a Cancer (Earl Van Best, Jr.). Here are the other signs and what the FBI has to say about them.
1Aries (March 21st – April 20th)
The Aries, or the Ram, is pretty stubborn. He or she doesn’t like being told what to do. This sign may choose a profession outside the law in order to avoid authority or being questioned. Aries are often hired guns, but sometimes the rise to the tops as drug kingpins or worse.
Certain Aries bad guys include: Robert Durst, Paul John Knowles, Robert Durst, among others.
