More than a decade after Staff
Sergeant Matt Maupin was captured by Iraqi insurgents in 2004 and later
killed, new information has come forth on Maupin's death.
Keith Maupin, Matt's father,
says government officials informed him that an Iraqi inmate has admitted to
killing his son.
"They told me they had a guy in jail over there that has
confessed to killing Matt," said Keith. "They're pretty sure this is the guy or
he wouldn't have called me."
Keith Maupin says there are
other cases against his son's alleged killer.
"There are two other cases against him at the same time. One
of them is for killing a civilian over there," said Maupin.
On April 9, 2004, Matt was captured in
Iraq when his fuel convoy was ambushed. He appeared in a videotape filmed by
his captors, and another videotape inconclusively showed him being executed. Maupin's remains were found in Iraq in 2008, almost four years after his convoy was attacked in 2004.
FOX19's Tricia Macke asked Keith Maupin what he would say to
his son's alleged killer if he spoke to him. Maupin responded:
"Why did you take his
weapon? At that time was not a threat. He was just a kid that wanted to serve
his country and come home. Why?"
Since Matt's disappearance, Keith has dedicated his life to supporting our troops is getting some big help
from the community. The Yellow
Ribbon Support Center is a non-profit founded by Keith Maupin that sends
thousands of care packages to troops serving overseas.
