How to identify killed processes.

I'm trying to find out the processes that got killed due to out of memory condition that has occurred on the server. Using the PIDs that got killed is there a way to find out what process was killed. Is there a place to look them up on RHEL5+ servers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
