blown engine

Hi
I have a 1979 chevy truck with an 8 cylinder small block. I was going down the highway and my engine just blew. I found a piece of tinfoil with cardboard on and what looked like a filler cap in the hole where the engine oil goes. It was just laying in there loosely. I think someone might have put it in there to make my engine blow, or a kid put it in there for a prank when I left the hood open for a while.
Is it possible that that would have caused my engine to blow?

Thanks
