Restoring a deleted user from Active Directory

A user was supposedly deleted from Active Directory.    
We are using Windows Server 2008 R2.


I am using LDP.exe, and I see CN=Deleted Objects, DC=XYZ,DC=COM

I see items under the CN=Deleted Objects
The item was deleted on Wednesday, 4/4/2012.

If this item was restored, would it still be under CN=Deleted Objects.

I do not believe the item was ever deleted so is there anyway to track deleted a user within an OU?

When you restore a user back into AD is there anyway to see when it was restored?

Thanks

Have you tried using ADSIEdit to set the CN to the same as a correct user?
