I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Deleted items are typically permanently deleted.  However, there is apparently "some information" that is retained unless you permanently delete the entire account.,-pictures,-etc)-that-I-delete-from-Facebook

You may be able to download a copy of the profile to see if the pictures exist in there.  To do this,

1. Log in to Facebook
2. Click the arrow at the top right and select "Settings"
3. At the bottom of the page, select "Download a copy of your Facebook data" (see attachment)

If that does not work, contacting Facebook would be your only option.  However, I could not find information on anyone that successfully has done that without a court order.
