I'm sorry for your loss. To me it sounds like something may be physically damaged.

To elaborate a bit further, fastboot doesn't usefully exist without root, stock recovery can only wipe your userdata, and you've already said download mode reboots way too early to try anything. There is no safe way to try anything with the firmware, if it even somehow is a firmware issue. There's the leaked firehose, if you force it into 9008 mode, but that's risky and I have no personal experience with it to give more details.

Basically don't expect it to be coming back.

boot in fastboot flash twrp and reinstall laf partition

Without it already being rooted and the dirtysanta bootloader installed there is no fastboot mode on anything (which you would have seen if you had read the OP) but the h918 (which still can't flash with it) and us996, and you still need a working phone to actually set the options in Android to allow unlocking the bootloader.

And I'd put it at like an 80% chance it's hardware failure anyway, since it's boot looping in download mode too.
