The chilling image of a mystery man standing on a roof overlooking the chaotic scene at the finish line of Monday's Boston Marathon
gave rise to lively Twitter debate, with many convinced the figure must have had something to do with the explosions.
Two explosions tore through the finish line of the Boston Marathon Monday within 30 seconds of each other, leaving three people dead and hundreds injured
. The tragedy is being handled as an act of terror, according to the White House, and a person of interest is reportedly being detained at a hospital.
Dan Lampariello, a spectator at the race, snapped the photo of the second bomb exploding, and unintentionally captured the silhouette of a man standing on the roof of a building right above the blast. The photo quickly went viral.

Police reportedly cracked down on rooftop parties along the marathon route, leaving Twitter users stumped as to why someone would be up there.
"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.
