OK. Here is some tips to delete user account from deleted users list by using power shell.
For example, I'd like to permanently delete email@example.com from deleted users list.
Below is how I am doing with powershell for this. Please modify in highlighted area as your requirement.
Syntax to see deleted users by listing UserPrincipleName and ObjectID
Get-MsolUser –ReturnDeletedUsers | select UserPrincipalName, ObjectId
