As chilling photos of the deadly blasts at Monday’s Boston Marathon began to circulate, one image stood out for some Twitter users, sparking debate over what appeared to be a man walking on a rooftop of a building overlooking the finish line.

The photo, taken by spectator Dan Lampariello, showed the second bomb explode several hundred yards from the first as runners approached.

It wasn’t long before the phrase "Boston Marathon roof," propelled by wild speculation, was trending on Twitter.

"Who’s the guy on the roof?" one Twitter user asked. "He’s not reacting to the detonation."

"The picture of the guy on the roof overlooking the second explosion is the spookiest thing I have ever seen," another wrote.

User @anon15576, an apparent member of the Anonymous hacktivist collective, tweeted: "#bostonmarathon bombing. #man on the roof. Anyone at all know #anything #fellow #anons plz tell me more about the man on the roof. #thanks."

It’s worth noting that as the unverified image went viral, Boston police and law enforcement officials were asking anyone who took cellphone photos or video near the finish line to submit the footage to the FBI to assist in the ongoing terror investigation.
