March madness

Hearing of the massacres in Alabama and Germany, I was wondering yesterday about other similar tragic losses of life and remembered the one at a school in Scotland some years ago. incredibly, it was noted in today's "On this day". It was at Dunblane, Scotland, and the shooting spree left 16 children and their teacher dead. That was 1996 - March 13. So, is there a possibility that these are not random dates? Has any research been done on the timing of similar incidents. Could they be related to Seasonal Affective Disorder in the Northern Hemisphere? Or is this just a way of trying to make sense of the unfathomable?
