Impossible to tell over a computer but it sounds like it had an oil leak and you ran it out of oil. My guess is there was a lot of noise associated with it stalling. The first things to go are the crankshaft and the crankshaft and connecting rod bearings. Most mechanics will disassemble enough from the bottom to do an inspection, then try to determine if repairs are worthwhile or if a used engine is a better option.
