Get rid of Orphaned sites: Detach and Reattach the Content Database

"My solution was to drop the content database in Central Administration. I remembered that as part of a content database attach process, SharePoint would examine the db to see what site collections existed. So after detaching and then re-attaching, sure enough the site showed up in Central Admin and I could delete the site collection."

Update: one of my a coworkers has tried this out just as we speak and with success!
