    Have you tried plugging it into your PC with the USB cable? Of course you'll need to charge the phone. Is it not turning on at all? Anything showing on the screen? (like a sad smiley face, or an exclamation point?)

    That would mean you exhausted all avenues to recover. Have you tried the Windows Device Recovery Tool? FAQ - How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA

    Well it seems you had bitlocker enabled in the settings.

    When recovering my Surface Pro 3 from Windows 10 Technical Preview back to Windows 8.1 it asked me the same thing but instead of USB it said check your emails, I did and there was a code I just typed it and it unlocked instantly. So you could try checking your emails.
