I doubt a snapped belt "destroyed the engine" as it would seem to spin freely on the starter motor and it was stated the initial stall wasn't "catastrophic" (or noisy) in nature. A timing belt that lost a few teeth however is a possibility; a compression check would have helped determine if that was the case.

Let us know what the final diagnosis from the mechanic is. Hopefully it's something simple and inexpensive.
