Any Reason This Would Be Considered Load Bearing?


Demolished this low wall and found this 2x8(x2) beam butt jointed to the two pillars on left and mid pic. There is a cathedral vaulted ceiling in the room behind. I can't think of any reason there needs to be a load bearing cross brace here nor what they needed a 2x8x2 beam? Can I take this out?
