Maupin and his fellow soldiers were victims of an insurgent ambush attack near Baghdad International Airport on Good Friday 2004.

He was 20-years-old at the time of his capture and was the first Army Reserve POW since the Vietnam era.

In 2014, Maupin's father, Keith Maupin, said government officials informed him that an Iraqi inmate admitted to killing his son.
