My money is on a grasshopper or locust judging by the type of damage, they'll munch the leaves and the stems. Difficult to deal with cause they move around a lot. With catterpillars, you'd most likely find them still on the plant and their poop is a dead give away, but they mostly prefer the leaves. 

Smallish plants need extra protection for this reason, decapitated seedlings can't normally survive that kind of damage. If the stem is not completely cut, you could support it with a small stake and try to give it a chance, it might heal.
