Sadly I could not find out.

Going forward – To capture deletes on a table I set-up a regular ‘after delete’ trigger with some extra columns to hold system functions.

This allowed me to capture the date/time, PC-Name and login that originated deletes. Here is my working lab …

--lab_trigger_deletes.sql

--create table to be monitored and add some data
	CREATE TABLE t1 (c1 INT, c2 int)
	INSERT INTO t1 VALUES (1,7), (2,8), (3,9)

-- create audit table
	CREATE TABLE t1_audit (c1 INT, c2 INT, c3 DATETIME, c4 SYSNAME, c5 SYSNAME, c6 SYSNAME)

-- check contents of both tables
	SELECT * from t1
	SELECT * FROM t1_audit

-- create trigger
	CREATE TRIGGER trg_ItemDelete 
	ON dbo.t1 
	AFTER DELETE 
	AS
	INSERT INTO dbo.t1_audit(c1, c2, c3, c4, c5, c6)
			SELECT d.c1, d.c2, GETDATE(), HOST_NAME(), SUSER_SNAME(), ORIGINAL_LOGIN()
			FROM Deleted d

-- delete a row (firing the trigger)
	DELETE FROM t1 WHERE c1 = 2

-- check contents of both tables again
	SELECT * from t1
	SELECT * FROM t1_audit

-- tidy up
	IF OBJECT_ID ('trg_ItemDelete', 'TR') IS NOT NULL DROP TRIGGER trg_ItemDelete;
   	drop TABLE t1
	drop TABLE t1_audit
