Does the starter engage the engine and attempt to turn? If so remove the spark plug and try it. You should be able to turn it by hand also.

Remove the spark plug and see, if it cranks spin it a bit and see if any fluid comes out the spark plug hole.

Check to see if either belt has tension on it, or turns when you turn the engine.
Was there any oil left in the engine? Has it been refilled?
With the spark plug removed and the belts off, it should spin freely by hand without a socket.

Do you have any noise whatsoever when you load the ignition key to the start position? Rapid clicks, humm, clunk, anything? Are all levers in neutral (start-ready) position?

Make sure the starter gear is engaging the flywheel. Sounds to me like your crankshaft bushing has siezed due to lack of oil. I assume the oil was low when you checked? Since you said the engine was leaking, and you were mowing on an incline when it died, I tend to think you have internal damage.
