Florida Man Kills Girlfriend As Astrology-Motivated ‘Sacrifice’

The dark side of zodiac compatibility tests, via the South Florida Sun Sentinel:

A Lauderhill man told a bizarre tale of needing to find a victim who had a Taurus zodiac sign when he described the fatal Easter Sunday stabbing of his live-in girlfriend to police, authorities said Monday.

Darrius Johnson, 22, stabbed Monica Gooden, 20, multiple times early Sunday at their residence, according to his statements recorded in a Lauderhill police complaint affidavit.

Johnson told police the victim had control over his spirit and that the couple had fought over his wanting a relative to live with them, the affidavit states. Police said that Johnson also told them he “sacrificed” the victim for his and her betterment, and that he knew he had to sacrifice someone with a Taurus astrological sign, the report states.

    The article points out that she wasn’t even a Taurus.

    Florida may be the most terrifying place on earth.

    interesting that a lot of comments blame Florida for harboring nut-jobs
    when in fact
    Homeland troops are doing pretty much the same things
    for pretty much the same voodoo reasons
    in all sorts of backwater places
    but coming soon to a theater near you

    The Florida stereotype is insufficient. Grade-A bigots would also hoot about Southerners, religious people, the lack of SCIENCE, and the name “Darrius Johnson”. You guys are getting lazy.
