Authorities confirm the Osawatomie Police Department responded on a report of a domestic disturbance in the 1100 block of Chestnut Avenue shortly before 1:30 this morning. Officers found a female who reported she had been strangled during a disturbance with Mr. Maupin.
Maupin had barricaded himself inside a home. Osawatomie Police requested assistance from the Miami County Sheriff's Office at the scene. As that backup was arriving, Maupin emerged from the residence and ran from officers on foot.
Officers caught up with Mr. Maupin about a block away from the scene, where he continued to resist arrest. One officer deployed a Taser and Maupin was taken into custody. Prior to being transported to jail, officers reported that Maupin had become unresponsive.
Miami County EMS was already on the scene treating the female who was injured in the initial disturbance. Medics reported Maupin had stopped breathing and requested a second ambulance respond "emergency" to the scene on Chestnut. He was rushed to Miami County Medical Center, where he later died.
A statement released this morning says it is normal protocol for the KBI to be brought in to investigate a death that occurs while a subject is in police custody.
Kansas Department of Corrections records show Maupin was discharged, at the completion of his sentence, from the Lansing Correctional Facility in December 2008. He was convicted in Anderson County, Kansas on charges of Forgery and Aggravated Battery from 2006.
