TOWSON, Md. — Maryland's Inspector General for Education has completed an investigation into "inappropriate sounds," heard during an October 14 Baltimore County School Board meeting.

The sex-like noises were heard around 1:17 a.m. while the meeting was being held virtually.

There was no so called "zoom bombing,” meaning the sounds came from the device of one of the meeting's 33 logged in participants, according to the IG.

Whose device it was is still a mystery.

The meeting in question was operated through Microsoft by invite only.

Baltimore County Public Schools apparently didn't request that Microsoft officially record the meeting, and instead used an in-house device to chronicle the proceedings.

As result, investigators were unable to determine which of the participants devices, the sound originated from.

Also the platform doesn't track which attendees had their devices muted or unmuted at the time.

The IG did suggest the sound was likely unintentional , and not meant for others to hear.

The problem has been referred back to the school system as an internal matter.
