The last remaining footage of Australian "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin's deadly encounter with a stingray has been destroyed, says his widow.
The 44-year-old wildlife enthusiast died on Sept. 4 after a stingray pierced Irwin's heart with its poisonous barb. He was filming a wildlife special off the Australian coast at the time.
"There's standard protocols for examining certain evidence and that's no longer necessary,'' Terri Irwin told the celebrity television show Access Hollywood in an interview that aired on Friday. "All footage has been destroyed."
Australian officials said last week that they had finished their investigation into Irwin's death and destroyed all but one copy of the tape, which they said they gave to Terri Irwin.
