Error deleting Exchange 2016 database

I am unable to delete my Exchange database, I'm getting the following error message:

When I run the command to see if there are Mailbox request still there, I get the following results:

There were a few more results there, but I was able to remove them. However these leftover results don't have a username under Mailbox and I have no idea on how to remove them.
