Default 96 Honda Accord LX 4-cylinder?

I have had a couple of issues with my Accord. At first my radio went out as well as the cigarette lighter. I believe that may have been caused by my wiring harness but I am not sure. Also on the way back home from NC to FL it began to overheat, I pulled and let it cool. My fluid levels were fine so I believe this was my water pump. However after the engine cooled I began my trip again and my Accord acted like it did not want to catch the next gear. I gave it a little more gas and when it caught the gear it just went out of me. At first I thought I slung a rod. When i pulled over I was leaking oil badly. I have checked my oil pan and I have two holes in it, both coming out from the oil pan so I know nothing came from the road and entered my pan. I have checked my cylinder heads and everything looks great as well as the camshaft. I have also checked all of the gears on the right side of the engine and there is no slack on any of the belts. Any help would be greatly appreciated because I am running out of ideas, thank you in advance.

Common sense indicates check the fuses first when I say im running out of ideas i've already went through the simple shit.

radio and cig light went out because of a blown fuse should be located under your dash

if water pump failed you wouldve leaked coolant

take off the oil pan and inspect

That sure sounds like a thrown rod, I'm sorry to say. The oil pan comes off fairly easily (except you may have to struggle where it butts against the transmission) but you will have to remove the bearing bridge - not a big deal - to get a clear view. If there is a thrown rod you may not need such a clear view, though.
