There are unconfirmed reports that a soldier from the Tri-State kidnapped in April in Iraq (news - web sites) has been killed, WLWT has learned.
Pfc. Matt Maupin, 20, of Batavia, Ohio, a member of the 724th Transportation Company, was captured April 9. His convoy was attacked by gunmen using rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons.
According to military representatives close to the Maupin family who spoke to WLWT, sources are reporting that the Al Jazeera TV network has a videotape of Maupin being shot.
The military has not changed Maupin's status, and the report of his death has not been confirmed.
A tape showing Maupin being held by guerillas was released about a week after Maupin was reported missing.
Additional details are forthcoming.

Al Jazeera is an open sewer.
The Middle East is an open sewer. God have mercy on his soul.
Now the Supreme Court has ruled that we the people of the U.S. will have to PAY for the defense of the terrorists who unsuccessfully tried to kill.
Take no prisoners.
Carpet-Bomb Mecca. NOW.
Then execute 10 prisoners for every 1 hostage killed and wrap their corpses in freshly killed pig skins.
Didn't we already do that once 'by acciedent' (or so they claimed) last year?
I pray this is just a rumor. If not, then the dogs of war need to be loosed on Iraq.
I think that was their "office" in Iraq, not their central HQ in Qatar.
We will pray for justice against his murderers and the complicit al jazeera.
I think we hit their Baghdad headquarters with an experimental EMP weapon.
can't do that. the SCOTUS just granted US rights to those prisoners.
I wonder if this (if true) has anything to do with the rumors of the Zarqawi capture (if true) this morning.

Sorry, not before the election....
My brother-in-law left for Iraq yesterday. He's a civilian contractor and plans on being there for 14 months.
I pray for his safe return.
Meanwhile, I hope all terrorist vermin are exterminated.
The Sewer Rats didn't like getting upstaged by the Iraqi gov. handover.
The minute I head about the transfer today, I thought we would probably get news of a hostage execution around mid-day.
Sadly, it appears I may have been right. Prayers for his family in their darkest hours.
I will keep him in my prayers.
In the mean time I keep all of our Americans in our prayers and pray God will convict the hearts of the mean and cruel of our world to repent and turn from their wicked ways.
