Can you get to try and rotate the engine by hand? Battery ok, any power at the starter, do dash lights come on?

I would pull the plugs and attempt to rotate the engine again, if not moving it well may be seized, have you had any oil or coolant problems prior to this problem?

This will make it easier to turn engine, but if access is a problem don't worry about pulling all just the ones that are easy to get to, if you can get to the ring gear via an access plate or the starter motor and use a suitable lever to see if the engine can rotate by levering the ring gear this will do as well, just need to know if the engine will turn easly pulling the plugs and having no compression to fight against will mane this a bit easier yo achieve that's all.
