Is there a way to delete a hipchat message via the api?

There is a way to delete messages from hipchat rooms via the admin interface, but I can't find a way to do this from the API (even in V2). 

The use case for this is that we have a room "Ready for Testing" where our resolved JIRA's get posted to. It would be really useful to be able to delete them from the room once the JIRA is closed, so that the messages in the room represent the currently reality.
