Perhaps the pipe broke in the wall?

Any moisture evident near the sound? if nothing's wet, could it be a vent pipe?

For the last 10 yrs or so I've had an occasional 'drip drip' sound in the exterior wall of my closet which has no plumbing even close - I think it might be from some styrofoam insulation.

Turn all the water off and go out and clock the water meter
