This picture, reported to have been taken by spectator Dan Lampariello, shows what appears to be a man walking on the roof of a building near the site of the second bomb.

While the picture is spreading virally across the internet, there has been no official comment on the picture from law enforcement and no connection has been made to the explosions.

But, many conversations are happening now across Facebook and Twitter about the photo and the keywords "Boston Marathon roof" have been trending on Twitter.

This post asking Who's that guy on the roof? has been retweeted close to 2300 times at the time of this writing, however no official source has weighed in on the photo and no official connection has been made between the shadowy figure in the picture and the blasts, just tweeters saying things like "the man on the roof is creeping me out" and wondering why the man on the roof is not reacting to the detonation.

Looking at the photo, there's no way to really tell whether or not the picture has been photoshopped, and whether or not the figure in the picture is really even a man on the roof, it could be a woman or a teen.
