Exclamation 7.3 Truck Broke.. Not Good..

Need some help distinguishing the problem.. I thought it was a turbo but my dad says it still should start even if the turbo was bad??? Here is what happened.

Our hired man was plowing snow and he thought it was gelling because it was spudering and it died. He started it back up and it died again and wouldn't start. No CEL or anything. I showed up and instantly knew it wasn't good as I saw oil on the ground from the tail pipe. There was a little trail of oil from where he was plowing to where it died. I checked the oil and there was a little oil left on the stick (I know it had proper oil level yesterday) So it puked the oil out somewhere. There is oil all over the turbo area and like I said it came out of the exhaust so that lead me to the conclusion it was the turbo.

Could it be a HPOP? What do you guys think?

Heres my idea. If you are very low on oil your injectors will not fire. Fill your truck up with oil to the appropriate level as well as your high pressure oil pump reservoir. Try to start it back up, if it runs see if you can find out where the leak is coming from. Make sure you clean the engine up good. Could be many things. Turbo pedestal o-rings, pedestal o-rings, hpop lines, icp sensor and a few others. Thats my idea, may not be the best but its a start.
