The Piston rod and maybe even the rod and piston came out and is gone or it made the hole and bounced back in the oil pan and is inside the pan. Its happen to me one time the rod came out and hung there, the piston was on the inside of the hole still attached.

Yep definitely threw a rod, and there's no fixing that engine, it now has to be replaced, and a 95 it's not worth a new engine, but it's your car so you decide if you scrap it, keep it and put a used engine in or bite the bullet and put in a new engine.

When they go boom like that it is time for a new engine or a new car.
