It you always start with the long id of the target and then delete 4  
words for each level you want to move up in the hierarchy you will be  

put the long id of the target into theID

delete word 1 to 4 of theID -- gives the owner

delete word 1 to 8 of theID -- gives the owner of the owner

.. etc.

IMO "the owner" should work in your scenario but it doesn't.
