Delete Mailbox for deleted in AD user (Exchange 2010)

Hi All,

System :
Server 2008 as DC
Exchange Server 2010 as mail server

I have a little mistake, i deleted user in AD before deleting mailbox. Now this mailbox is not in mailboxes list and not in Disconnected mailboxes, but i can see this mailbox  from PowerShell. If i try to delete this mailbox i have this message :

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Remove-Mailbox -Identity domain\user
The operation couldn't be performed because object 'domain\user' couldn't be found on 'dc.domain.yes'.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [Remove-Mailbox], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 2F1637E6,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.RemoveMailbox
Because this user is deleted from AD.

Please help me to delete this mailbox from Exchange 2010 without restore object(user) to AD.

Thanks!

Thank you Subsun! It's worked.

1) Clean DB
Clean-MailboxDatabase DB4

2) Check the Identity number of mailbox
Get-MailboxStatistics -Database DB4 | Select DisplayName, Identity | Sort-Object DisplayName  | Format-Table

3) Remove mailbox
Remove-StoreMailbox -Database DB4 -Identity "457465d4-6245-48f4-ab45-98573798cf0f" -MailboxState Disabled

Thank you All for help!!!
