Wire may be from switch

In my house, one outlet in each bedroom was controlled by a wall switch via a red wire. When I added ceilling fixtures, I disconnected the red wire from the switch and outlet, and ran a new wire from the switch to the ceiling fixture. I left the red wire in the wall, knowing it was not connected to anything. After disconnecting the red wire, the outlet was always hot.
