Open SiteController.php and write this complete code into it.

cURL Request with DELETE Using HTTP –

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Http;

class SiteController extends Controller
{
    public function index()
    {
         $deleteId = 40;
         // URL
         $apiURL = 'https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts/'.$deleteId;

         $response = Http::delete($apiURL);
   
         $statusCode = $response->status();
         $responseBody = json_decode($response->getBody(), true);
       
         echo $statusCode;  // status code
 
         dd($responseBody); // body response
    }
}

        "guzzlehttp/guzzle": "^7.0.1",
        //...
  },
<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class SiteController extends Controller
{
    public function index()
    {
        $deleteId = 40;
        // URL
        $apiURL = 'https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts/' . $deleteId;

        $client = new \GuzzleHttp\Client();
        $response = $client->request("DELETE", $apiURL);

        $statusCode = $response->getStatusCode();
        $responseBody = json_decode($response->getBody(), true);
    }
