Matt Maupin's Body Recovered in Iraq

UPDATED and Bumped by Rusty: R.I.P. Sgt Maupin. The Maupin family website, in honor of their son, is here.

We've been following this case for years, always with the hope that Maupin would be found alive. Maupin was captured & murdered by the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah. Our prayer is now that these terrorists will all be swiftly found and killed.

Sgt. Matt Maupin, who has been missing in Iraq since April 2004, is coming home at last (via The Cincinnati Enquirer):

Sgt. Matt Maupin is dead, the parents of the missing Clermont County soldier said today.

Maupin's remain were found in Iraq, nearly four years after he was captured by insurgents, his parents said. An Army general visited them today and gave them the news, they said.

"Matt is coming home. He's completed his mission," his father, Keith Maupin, said.
