DELAND, Fla. (UPI) Authorities in five Central Florida counties are attempting to determine if there is a link between the weekend slaying of a yound Dcland man and the abduction of his wife, a similar abduction in Winter Haven and a wave of terrorist robberies in the Orlando area. "I'm real disturbed (his wave of terrorism." Volusia County Sheriff Ed Duff said Sunday. "By virtue of the modus operandi of these people, we think there's a damn good possibility at least two of these cases are lied together." In the latest incident Friday night. Henry Kersey. 21, Deland was shot and killed by two masked men whom he sur- prised inside his home. Ker- sey's wife was bound and driven to a St. Johns river bridge, where she was thrown in the water. She was rescued by a Casselberry, Fla., couple who were fishing under the bridge. In a similar incident last Oct. 15. a lone gunman broke into the Winter Haven home of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth 0. Stevenson, bound and forced Stevenson into the trunk of the family car and blindfolded Mrs. Stevenson. The couple and their two sons were driven about for a while, then the bandit returned the car and the children lo their home and in another vehicle drove Mrs. Stevenson to the Howard Frankland bridge over Tampa Bay. where he hurled her into the water. She clung to a bridge piling for nine hours before being rescued by fisher- men. Over the past two months there have also been reports of several Orlando-area robberies in which the bandits have terrorized home dwellers, sometimes beating, raping or otherwise torturing them. Duff said sheriffs in Hills- borough. Polk, Orange, Semi- nole and Volusia Counties were studying the possibility of links between the various incidents. He said he was also investigating unsubstantiated rumors that Kersey was in- volved in Ku Klux Klan activity and may have been slain by blacks involved in a vendetta. by United Press International Today is Monday, Dec. 8, the 342nd day of 1975 with 23 to follow.
