Is there a way to delete records from a Feature Layer?

We have a good set up with GEP 10.3 that takes table data w/ X/Y coordinates and pushes them to a Feature Class (published w/ feature access).  Currently using an 'Update a Feature' output connector.

However I noticed recently that the target feature class is holding on to records we want deleted - in this case Police Department events that have been closed. 

The input data is correct - only has active events.  But because the closed/inactive event records are not in the input, they simply stay in the output Feature Class, with no way (that I know of) in GEP to get rid of them.  We can have a simple status field that will allow us to use a definition query to keep 'closed' events from showing up, but I am wondering if there is a way to use GEP to see that a certain record is not in the newest input dataset, and therefore remove it from the output dataset.
