Delete method in Web API

public HttpResponseMessage Delete(int id) {
try
{
Client c = null; // Get the tbClient object where clientId match id
// if matching client found then delete
// else send a message back saying "no client found"
var returnMessage = Request.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.Accepted, c);
returnMessage.Headers.Location = new Uri(Request.RequestUri + "/" + c.ClientId.ToString());
return returnMessage;
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    return Request.CreateErrorResponse(HttpStatusCode.BadRequest, ex);
}
}

Always keep the delete method type as HttpResponseMessage, so you can send customized response message back to user, so they know the end result of their call
