97 Sable Motor Seized?

I have a 1997 Mercury Sable. It stalled when my teen was driving it. He had the music cranked so loud that he can't tell me if it made any noise prior to or as it stalled. It stalled at a stop light. It now will not crank over. Battery under load is fine. Starter has been replaced. The starter engages with a "clunk", but will not spin. I removed the serpentine belt and 3 spark plugs. Put a 3/4 drive ratchet with a socket on the pulley bolt on the end of the crankshaft. I can't budge it in either direction.

Motor seized right up?
Can the transmission or torque converter having a problem cause me not to be able to budge the crank?

Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
