By AL PALMER JR. and ROGER PYNN Sentinel Staff A body believed to be that of Horace Hartwig, groomed as a key federal witness against Errol B. Resnick, was found Friday shot through the skull and bathed with lye in a shallow Lake County grave. In the latest turn of the no-quarter underworld war for control of organized crime in Central Florida, investigators were led to the woodland burial ground by the attorney for two men charged with Resnick in a marijuana case. ORANGE-OSCEOLA State Atty, Robert Eagan, witness to the grisly exhumation along with other officials, said attorney Emmett M o r a n , representing Chesley Slaughter and Leonard White, led them to the patch of woods south of Sorrento Friday afternoon. Eagan, who has compiled an outstanding record of criminal prosecutions since he took office three years ago, said Moran's aid cannot be discussed until events are sifted by U. S. Customs agents, the state attorneys and county investigators. An autopsy was ordered and Lake County State Atty. Gordon Oldham said the murder will be taken before a grand jury "when all the facts are there." THE USE of a plumber's flushing compound to speed the body's decay seemed to bear out a tip that Hartwig had been "rubbed out" by mobsters fearful of testimony he might give at an expanding docket of trials stemming from the explosion of Central Florida violence and drug smuggling. I n v e s t i gators told them an informer had described a sadistic "murder party" in which Hartwig was shot in the head, placed in a grave and doused with the corrosive fluid. Eagan said he believes the body had decayed in the grave since May, though the unemployed pilot was not reported missing by his wife until late July. OLDHAM SAID he ruled out asking Mrs. Hartwig to view the corpse because of its state of decomposition. But Eagan said she will be asked to view clothing taken from the grave. And dental tests will be conducted to determine positive identification. In the meantime, the Lake County medical examiner prepared to conduct an autopsy. "I understand all the circumstances, as docs Eagan," Oldham said. "And we will work together until we have grounds to bring this to a grand jury. I'll take it to a grand jury when all the facts are there." Oldham and Eagan were joined at the scene by Lake County Sheriff (Continued On Page 2-A, Col. 1) if1 n i ti : , V f If fvI it i 4 U !?: lidrill, O'MEl -i iff ' 1 "' Lrr t !

They dreamed of the impossible: Winning a lifetime pass to Walt Disney World. The impossible happened. Cinderella became a beautiful princess. The frog turned into a prince. The dream came true. WILLIAM WINDSOR JR., his wife, and their two small children from Lakeland Friday morning were named the "first family" as Disney World opened its gates to thousands of guests. To a family that never won a contest, it was a startling "victory." Their eyes were bright with excitement when they learned they had won. WINDSOR, A 23-year-old apartment manager-owner, and look-alike for golfer Jack Nicklaus, said: "When I was a little boy, I always dreamed of going vo Disneyland. "It's not just for myself," he said; "but for these two fellows." His wife, Marty, responded to the news this way: "1 CAN'T believe it. I think I'm still asleep and dreaming." The couple's two children, both blue-eyed blonds, had nothing to say. Jay, 3, and Lee, l, "must be too overcome to say anything," suggested their father. The Windsor family spent the day on an accelerated tour that left them tired and sweat-stained. Asked if they wanted to rest in the afternoon, Windsor said: "ONLY FOR a little while. We don't want to miss anything." The family, determined to see everything Friday, was escorted by Disney Ambassador Debby Dane and other Disney officials. They were followed by dozens of reporters and photographers. The Windsors were serenaded by bands and introduced to Disney characters at the attraction. Mickey Mouse spent much of the day with them. THE WINDSORS almost did not come to Disney World. A friend discouraged them, saying they would never be the first family. Windsor figured the friend just wanted them to stay home and play poker, so he packed the luggage and the kids into the Volkswagen Thursday.

The $400 million theme park opened more than two hours early Friday morning, climaxing six years of planning and building. But biggest news of the day was the things that didn't happen instead of those that did. TRAFFIC didn't back up to Macon, Ga., as some predicted. It didn't even back up to Kissimmee, Crowds didn't back up at the main entrance to the theme park and people didn't stumble over each other rushing for the 30 attractions inside. The official crowd was 10,422, about a fifth as many as are expected at Florida Field today to watch the thrice-beaten Gators play Tennessee. BUT THOSE who came enjoyed. And enjoyed, and enjoyed. One wide-eyed lady was heard to say, "It's hard to believe this isn't real," whatever that means but it did seem apropros in the make-believe land that includes Fantasy land, Adventureland, Frontierland, Main Street U.S.A. and Liberty Square. Another gray-haired lady leaving the theme park via one of four sleek monorails said of the fiberglass fantasy, "It's unbelievable."' Mrs. Les Stewart, who was visiting from Erie, Pa., added, "We're coming back next year and bringing four granddaughters. They'll love it." The crowd, which came early and stayed until security hosts cleared the park at 6 p.m. strolled casually beneath the hot sun choosing the inside air-conditioned shows over the outside attractions. Top attraction Friday appeared to be the Hall of Presidents, which played to a full house time and again. Just around the corner at the Mickey Mouse Revue,, the attraction went on at 4:30 with more than two-thirds of the seats empty. (Continued On Page 7-A, Col. 4) Tlse Weather Fair. High near 90.
