If both leads are hot it is likely that there is a half switched receptacle (or several) in the room that someone replaced and did not break the tab.

if you dont want to unscrew the outlets, u can remove the black that is in the same wire set as the red and test for the dead outlet or light.

I took out all the outlets in the basement on that circuit tonight and didn't find a red wire anywhere.
