Help Contacts - unknown that cant be removed

So I've done browsing to see if this problem has been resolved, and it doesn't seem like it has been.
So i have a bunch of contacts tied into my "contacts" on my note 3, and had the same issue on my old note 2 and previous phones. they are not skype contacts as i have already uninstalled skype to see if they were somehow connected ... they arent.
my only guess is they are a bunch of random people i randomly followed on google+ a few years ago, but i just completely deactivated my + account and they are still there!
no idea where else these could come from, cuz the only info on them is a picture, name, and their google link. any further suggestions? please?

i was able to hide them from showing up in my contacts when opened, but if i go to add somebody to my contacts, they are all there as "existing".
Have you tried editing the contact and deleting it?

Otherwise if you synced that account then you might want to try unsyncing it in your settings.
I had this same problem, and it turns out that I had them backed up in my google account. I signed into gmail, clicked on the drop down menu next to Gmail (on the left just above compose), selected contacts, then clicked other contacts (which is a drop down menu if you hover over circles). There I found a ton of email addresses from craigslist people I had emailed, skype contacts etc. I was able to check the box of those I wished to delete, then go up to more and select delete. Hope that helps. Or hinders in the case that just maybe I have no idea what you were actually talking about, and I'm WAY off base. :)
