This could be caused by one or more of several things, but it sounds like worn main bearings beginning to seize. Worn bearings generate more heat which causes the metal bearings and their races to 'swell," thus getting tighter and generating more heat until the drag of the bearing friction is greater than the power of the motor. Eventually you can't restart it until the engine has fully cooled down.

Next, with the head off and the switch in the off position, pull it over a few times and see if the shaft spins. If not, could be a broken shaft or a bad clutch.
