I've got an old junction box that used to have a light fixture attached to it (it's been removed). I'd like to remove the junction box entirely and sheetrock over if it's not serving any purpose (for aesthetic reasons).
I think it used to have 2 switches that controlled it, but it has four 3-wire romex in the box. One of the old switch boxes is still around. Both that switch box and this junction box are hot. Further, in the box, both the black wire bundle and the single black wire are hot. There are no traveler wires anywhere. I would be wholly unsurprised if this box is wired weird/not-to-code by the former owners. I vaguely remember having intermittent trouble depending on what configurations the switches were in when that fixture was operable.
