After I delete a contact I can still access their name/number when composing a new message, when I type their name it shows their number as "other." How can I remove them permanently?

I have a contact that I no longer want on my phone, so I have deleted them from my contacts.

However I can still access their contact when I compose a new message. Their name and number are listed as "other," how can I permanently remove their details?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.3
