Instead of removing the stuff in front of the graphic, you can just select
each item in turn and "send it to back." Evenually you'll be able to grab
the unwanted graphic and remove it.

A graphic exists in a context.  On a page, the context is the page's 
border, so that the 
graphic is in a z-ordinate or list from front to back with everything else 
on that page.
In an anchored frame, the graphic is in a front-to-back list with 
everything else in the 
anchored frame.

Save a back up of the file.

Ctrl-click each item that lies in front of the graphic item. Cut them to 
the clipboard.
Click on the unwanted graphic and delete it.  Select the context: in a 
page, click in the 
margin outside the text frame, in an anchored frame, Ctrl-click the 

It is important to  select the context at this point because the x-y 
coordinates of the items 
on the clipboard are preserved and applied to position them in their 
original locations 
provided they are pasted back into the context whence they were cut.

Now paste from the clipboard.

Hope this helps,
