Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin, missing in Iraq for four years, will be buried in Cincinnati on April 27.
For four years, the parents of a soldier from Southwest Ohio regarded their son as captured and missing. Friends and family kept up hope that Matt Maupin would return home alive. But a recent Iraqi tip led the U.S. Army to his remains, and now the community is preparing for a funeral and a new sense of closure.
