The Tucson Police Department held a "press conference" Wednesday after a divisive audio recording gained traction on the internet this week.

The recording is of a voice that has people hearing one of two things, "Yanny" or "Laurel".

Heated discussions between the two camps continue to be had, similar to "The Dress" debate in 2015.

TPD settled the debate once and for all Wednesday.

What we've determined right now is that the audio sound that you've been hearing is actually the name Laurel, not Yanny, Sgt. Pete Dugan said.
