If the sources that are listed in the profile support the individual that the profile represents, then I don't believe that the profile should be removed/deleted. If the individual is just not the husband or father of the currently listed family members, then the relationships should just be removed.

It appears that the profile was originally created as George Poh with birth/death dates/places, but the name was later changed to Anonymous Anonymous and the data was removed. The bio and sources appear to be for George Poh. If the sources do support the data that was originally entered for George Poh, but you've found that he's just not related to you through the originally entered relationships, I'd suggest restoring the changes to get his name and data back on the profile and removing the relationships. Once you've done that, if you no longer want to manage the profile, you can orphan it. Even if George is not your relative, he appears to be a real person and might be someone else's relative, and you've already found sources and info for him.
