CAR RAN WTIHOUT ANY OIL, HOW TO DETERMINE IF HEADGASKET IS BLOWN?

1999 Saturn SL2 • 88,000 miles

21 yo idiot son had the car towed home, no oil in car and no gas. Put in 4 quarts and a gallon of gas, engine turns over yet will not start. I checked and it is getting gas and spark, spark plugs were in good condition no oil, erosion or burning. Checked the water and it was dark brown and felt oily or slippery, I have a strong suspicion this is either oil or gas. I haven't checked the compression on the cylinders yet but what will that tell me?

If its getting the correct fuel pressure and injectors are pulsing with a snapping blue spark-it should be able to start if not check the engine compression-start here
