how do i fix a vertice that isn't selected?

i’ve been working on rigging up my character following the stellatutorial.

here’s the problem i’ve having. the stomach is deforming in a spot where there is no vert selected i’ve triple checked everything. the same thing happens to the other side too.
here’s the images.

the weight painting shows that nothing else is selected.

go into edit mode and check the vertex group.


how do you know it isn’t part of the thumb group, or something else child of that bone?
