Deleting people on WikiTree leaves holes in the database and is strongly discouraged. You could replace the name of the person with 'anonymous' and remove any data that goes with the person. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Anonymization

This will better safeguard the person not being added back in by someone else later on.

You can also mark the profile as unlisted so no one but those on your trusted list can see it.

The following link will give you more information on deletion:
