Convicted sex offender Christopher Colon was working as a tour manager at the former John Hancock Center’s observatory four months ago when the Chicago Tribune revealed he was under federal investigation for disturbing new allegations involving child-sex fantasies.

A Tribune reporter who visited the observatory at 875 North Michigan Avenue — as the Magnificent Mile skyscraper is now known — found Colon still working as a manager in July while dozens of children waited in line to take the elevator ride to the 94th-floor observatory.

Colon, who said he had worked at the observatory for several years, denied wrongdoing but declined to answer the reporter’s questions about the investigation.

The observatory’s owner, 360 Chicago, immediately fired Colon after the Tribune asked questions about his employment.
