How to remove Orphaned VM ?

I have a VM that apperently failed a storage migration.  I had the option to complete the migration, but that also failed because the demotion files were missing.  I no longer need the VM, so I attempted to remove from enventory using the ProwerCli. 

Get-VM VMNAME | Remove-Inventory

This command completed sucessfully, but now the VM is showing up in vCenter as being orphaned.  I have no options to remove from inventory.

Does anyone know how I may remove the VM from vCenter via a SQL query?

I am running vCenter 4.1, and SQL 2005 SP3.

Thanks in advance,
