Look for a hole in the engine block. Or oil leaking.

Could be that your engine seized.

Will she push / roll start? Try turning the engine by hand via the alternator pulley. Key off, transmission in neutral.

Exhaust backfire could have blown a hole in the exhaust. But that should not keep it from cranking.

Reply back with more info.
