Craigslist Deletd Ad

So quite a while ago I came across a personal ad that my ex-spouse had in the Casual Encounters of Craigslist. My stomach heaved when I saw it.

I honestly don't know what made me look through Craigslist that night. But Bingo! I found him. It had two graphic pictures of him lying on his bed with his "junk" exposed and another of him sitting at his executive desk with the "junk" in full display. I recognized the furniture immediately.

Unfortunately I did not save copies of the ad and pics. I was so disgusted and I did not want them on my computer. I only had one pc at the time and all 3 of my young kids use it for homework etc. I just did not want to run the risk of them ever coming across it.

Now with my ongoing court case I would like to try and capture these pics. Needless to say he has deleted the ad. Does anyone know of a way to try and find them. I think it's been about 10 months since I saw the ad.

Any help would be great.

Do you know the email he used for Craigslist? If you do and you can log in, you can view all his past ads, even deleted ones.

I think all CL ads expire after a week, don't they?

Is subpoenaing it from CL not an option for some reason?

I sell on craigslist and all my ads going back YEARS are available under my craigslist login. It will show whether they expired or were deleted and I can click them and pull them back up. The photos themselves will not be there if the ad has expired for some time unless I used another site like photobucket to host the pictures, but the ad text is there even if years old.

I know his login name but not his password unfortunately.

Is there anyway to call them up on home pc? I thought that every time you looked at something on the Internet that it was somehow saved on your hard drive. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
