Gen 3 – “Turbo Failed” After 1 Month Of Owning 2009 2.5XT

I bought a 2009 Outback 2.5XT manual transmission with roughly 120K miles on it off of craiglist and after one month of owning the car the turbo failed on me. Sadly I made the mistake and didn’t give the car a pre-inspection at a mechanic (big mistake). Having all the car fax and purchasing the car with a newly replaced clutch, timing belt,…, I thought I was in the clear. I don’t have the mechanic report but they said that metal pieces of the engine pretty much shot into the turbo or vice versa; something along these lines I can’t remember exactly. Anyway I was left with either parting the car out or repairing the entire engine. What exactly went wrong and what should I do?! Please help with any suggestions or regards towards the mess I ended up with. Thanks
