I finished Metroid: Other M (I know, my first mistake) but the story line about the "deleter" never really resolved. Does anyone knew what happened to that guy?

The sad thing is, it's an absolutely fine game (not stellar, but not bad) if you completely block out the plot and voice acting! – Raven Dreamer Aug 4 '12 at 2:34
@RavenDreamer When considered by itself, sure, it's an okay game, but when considering the three fantastic Metroid Prime games that proceeded it, and the rest of the better games in the series, it's just a big ol' disappointment. – Fambida Aug 4 '12 at 5:32
@Fambida To be fair, the prime games were a different company (Retro Studios; Other M was Team Ninja) – Raven Dreamer Aug 4 '12 at 14:06
I liked Other M... – Shinrai Aug 6 '12 at 14:50
Other M wasn't terrible, but the story was pretty weak – WPickett Aug 6 '12 at 16:04

Yeah that subplot is mostly left dangling for no real reason. There is decent evidence as to how it ended though.

When Samus is lead to the Bioweapons Research Center, she meets MB. After Samus leaves at the end of the cutscene someone from the 07th Platoon comes in (one can assume this is the Deleter) and gets a shot at MB. When Samus returns to the room later in the game, James Pierce is seen dead on the spot.

It is pretty certain who it is. It turns out that you see a piece of equipment on his arm. Only one member of the team has that particular equipment. – TheBlackCat Mar 6 '15 at 17:13
