Broken Google places listing
We had a business listing created for our business on Google places. We have since decided to remove it, but for some reason when we deleted it from the My Business dashboard, the listing stayed live and its now broken and open for anyone to claim it.
We contact Google my business support, but they were not helpful as usual unfortunately. We also tried mark the business as not existed, but that tuned out to be a waste of time.
Can someone please help us with an advice of removing that broken listing?
Name of the listing is NorthWest Locksmith Spokane

Deleting the business from your My Business dashboard does not necessarily deletes it from the Local database, it only tells Google that you no longer wish to manage the business information. The business listing may remain in the Local database if Google decides that the business exists, which seems is what happened in this case.
What was the problem that prompt you to try to remove it?
You might as well claim it again and actively manage it if the business still exists.
