Engine Problems 😕 New - Crank Failure?

Hello Everyone; I'm new to the forums and wanted to join for the useful and knowledgeable personnel on these forums usually.

Recently purchased a BMC hardtail (avatar) with 100 CI revtech - 6 speed.

Problem: rode about 60 miles by the lake and was coming home, figured I'd fill up. Stopped and got gas, when I went to start it bogged the starter on compression stroke as it always does, and then free spun. Had nothing after that. After hauling it home and pulling everything off the drive side, the crank free spins - no compression. I did notice the compensator nut was loose. Any opinions, key way, broke crank? How are these cranks? Looking to get this fixed STAT!

Any reputable engine builders around Southwest Missouri?
