Default Broken trunk latch - 99 Convertible

Today, I pushed the button on my remote to open the trunk, heard the solenoid pop, but the trunk didn't open. Pushed it again and heard it, but much softer, still not open. Tried the key and it turned to the right, as usual, but now with no real resistance and no effect... and now it turns an equal distance to the left. Tried the trunk release handle... still nothing.

So I pulled the back seat only to find no way to get into the trunk from that side without breaking welds, which leaves me at a loss. Does anyone have a suggestion for getting the trunk open so I can figure out what broke and fix it?
