    This isnt me being sarcastic or anything, but you did empty the trash didnt you?

    To empty trash, click and hold the trash icon and go "Empty Trash"

    If you did empty the trash, did you restart? Restarting refreshes the Finder info...

    Are you sure you deleted the actual files and not just links to them?

    Search for some of the files you deleted in spotlight to check if they are still hanging around somewhere.
