A user downvoted one of your post. And now the profile of that user is deleted. So you get that reputation back. But note that we can also lose reputation for this reason in opposite situation. e.g. A user upvoted your post and his/her profile is deleted (for any reason), you will lose reputation gained from him/her.

From FAQ:

A user who voted for one of your posts had their account deleted (either by choice or due to violating the network's Terms of Service). As a result, all of their votes were undone, and the rep you gained from them (or lost because of them) was revoked.
