#8 cyl damage with only 85K miles?

My brother in law just bought a used 2002 F350 with 85,000 miles. A week after he bought it it started running rough. His mechanic put a new fuel pump on it. Now 5 weeks later it started blowing black smoke and running very rough. The mechanic pulled the engine and said he has cylinder wall and piston damage in the #8 cylinder.

Does this sound possible for an engine with 85k miles? I'm beginning to think the truck might have had 285K miles on it.

Not knowing the history of the truck its hard to say what went wont with it. The guy that pulled it should have been able to tell you what happened.
