Hello I will help you with your question,
Pull the plugs again and see if it is hydrolocked. If it is you have your answer and nothing but a rebuild will help this engine.
Please let me know how I can help you
Thank you

I changed the oil, but when I came back after my short run there was antifreeze in the oil!

Then you need to tear the engine down to repair. Frankly finding a replacement engine on would make more sense then trying to repair this one. In any case this will be costly to repair.

Thank you
