This would be the format of a delete query to delete specific records

DELETE FROM tablename
WHERE column = your url

I am not sure where it would be, it could be in stored procedures or in any columns of a table, so thats the challenge, please let me know if we have a way to figure out where it exists in the first place, thanks!

You can check stored procedures easily enough by scripting all your objects and dumping it into notepad or Word and then do some "finds".  If it is data within a table and you don't know which table or columns, it's certainly more involved.  
If you don't have too many tables/columns you can just manually query all the columns that could hold it.  SELECT * FROM table WHERE column LIKE '% your url %'

If there are too many tables/columns, you'd probably want to build a looping routine to look at all the tables.
