Cannot remove Active Directory user

I am trying to remove a user from Active Directory. adConn is my DirectoryEntry with admin rights. I keep getting an error that says that there is no such object on the server. I know the object is there because earlier in the program i can retrieve it as a search result. What am I doing wrong?

            'Locate the actual account in AD that is to be deleted
            Dim tempUser As DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry = adConn.Children.Find("CN=John Smith", "Users")

            'Delete the account
            adConn.Children.Remove(tempUser)
            'Confirm
            adConn.CommitChanges()

Have you tried continuing on with the tempUser LDAP path with your full domain?  Is "Users" a group, or an OU?
CN=John Smith,OU=Users,DC=domain,DC=com

I found a similar post on the ASP.net forums that might be worth taking a look at if you haven't seen it already.

I gave it the entire path. I used a DirectorySearcher and obtained the path from the result. I put the path in for adConn.Children.Find() to look for and it still tells me that there is nothing on the server.
