I think it was rode hard, put away wet and screaming, then beaten to death, for good measure. The block looks like it has sand/rust in the passages at the rear of the boat, the risers are toast and some of the push rods are bent, which probably means someone was doing flat spins or something else that was either a lot of fun or really stupid. You can decide which, because it can be hard to distinguish one from the other. Might have picked up a bunch of sand, too- first thing I would do is look into the exhaust flaps and remove the exhaust hoses so you can look into the muffler. It it's packed with sand, you'll have a better idea of why it died.
