Suspected Cheating on Exam using Respondus

I teach an online course in Anatomy & Physiology and we use Respondus Monitor for tests. On a recent exam, a student had two answers to questions that appeared in boxes (attachments) and a completely different font than I have observed in every single other exam I've viewed in 4 years of online exam taking. It appears to me to be cut and paste although I'm unsure how they would do that using the lockdown browser. I have a couple of possible avenues but in the resulting video, there is substantial evidence for the student having additional material they are looking at to the side of the computer. My question then is are the presence of the boxes conclusive evidence of cut and paste, given the different fonts involved and the "boxing" of the response?

Thanks for any help you all can provide.
