When did the Tower at Leipsic Junction get demolished?

I was there about six weeks ago on my company's delivery truck, and thought it was gone. I have seen no mention of its demise on any of the railroad sites I frequent, and I started to think maybe I had just missed it. I was there again yesterday and sure enough, it is gone.

I know it's really not that big of a deal (having sat abandoned for 35 or so years), but I cannot believe it hasn't been mentioned, with as many people in the area interested in the railroad activities.

I believe it was torn down towards the end of Summer. I recall hearing about it soon after I shot it on July 5th, so by late July/Early August it should have been demolished
