Problem diagnosis please

Today my son was driving his 04 Impreza Wagon had a puff of smoke and car died now tries to turnover very slowly but doesnt start everything seems to be moving pulley wise but slow. Was down 1 qt of oil. Any ideas ? Hoping like timing belt or something with alternator ?

Sounds like the timing belt. You do realize that means new heads and possibly engine?
