irrefutable (adj) indisputable.
A statement, an evidence, a proof, etc., are irrefutable if they are indisputable; that is, they cannot be proved wrong and have to be accepted.

If there are pictures of a person committing a crime, the pictures are an irrefutable evidence of the crime. That is, no body can deny the truth of the evidence.
