99% sure dead 4.7

So my jeep died a while ago, and i finially got the time to tinker with it. While trying to crank it tonight, all of a sudden it violently shot the oil fill cap off about 30ft in the air and popped the dipstick out. Im pretty certain, not fixxable, but just curious what would cause this. Cracked block dumping piston compression into oil system???
