First of all, if you plan to bury electrical junctions in the wall, you can't. All junctions need to be accessible via a blank cover plate or similar.

That being said, how can you not get to the light fixture wiring? You probably need to remove the fixture to do so.

What are you doing with the other wires that accompanied the red wire? You will need a junction box with exposed cover where you splice onto the black and white wires and in that box you can cap off just the one end of the red wire. Don't cut off a loose wire; someone might want to use it 50 years from now.

The old outlet box, left there, can be the junction box.

bury a junction box, what? I just am going to remove a outlet box.
You can't if you are unable to pull that other wire out of the wall from the old location. If you are able to back pull the old wire, or clip from the other end to not allow to be hooked up, you can just bury it. Personally, I would either leave a blank on the old location, or re-think this out. You can post a diagram of the the wall & floor plan in what you are trying to do, so that everyone can get a better idea of what you are attempting to do. Use Google Sketch-up for the drawings.
