Dexterity repository is showing items that have been deleted (when using TFS)

Solution
TFS doesn't permanently delete items. You need to destroy the item. You can do that in the command line or use this extension to do it from the UI: https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/af70cbb7-1e0d-4d16-bc57-cccc15370c51 

These steps are assuming you're using UI

Step 0 - Can you see deleted items?
If you can't see the deleted item in TFS Team Explorer, do this:
1. In VS > Options
2. Source Control > Visual Studio Team Foundation Server
3. Check "Show deleted items in the Source Control Explorer"

Step 1 - Destroy
1. Right-click on the item to delete
2. Advanced > Destroy
3. Choose the option saying you understand it deletes it

Step 2 - Verify in Dex repository that the item no longer shows up
