Post event webhook does not indicate post was deleted

I have a webhook handling post events, but if I delete a post, there is nothing that indicates deletion. I expected one of these fields to tell me it was deleted:

post {
           u'deleted_at': None,
           u'hidden': False,
           u'user_deleted': False,

@justindirose can you reproduce?

Yeah - I can.

I just deleted one on a locked category on a site of mine. A webhook was generated, but it does not indicate the post was deleted in the payload, only the header.

I think that is working as designed, the webhook sends a snapshot of object right before it happens as the action can be destructive and sends the reason of the webhook in the header.
