I saw this with a friend recently. They ended up draining and flushing the fuel tank and lines with fresh gas, changed the fuel filter, and ran OEM injector cleaner through the rails and injectors. They also changed the spark plugs and changed the crankcase oil as well. The unburnt diesel is most likely dripping past the rings into the crankcase, especially if enough got in to shut the motor down.
It could also be possible that the unburnt diesel in the exhaust carbonized in the catalytic converter, so be mindful of that once he gets it restarted.
My friend had all of the work done at the dealer, Home Owners Insurance covered it.
