I am unable to delete a defunct domain controller. The DC is permanently gone but attempts to delete it using Active Directory Users and Computers returns "The object (servername) (or some of the objects it contains) cannot be deleted because: Access is denied.

In Active Directory Users and Computers click View and select "Users, Groups, and Computers as containers". May be server contains some objects.
Also check the permissions for all objects

"I am logged in as Domain Administrator"- yoes, but domain administrator canhave no rights for some objects. In this case you should become owner of object and then assign rights.
