You are going to have to provide more information than that if you want help. What happened when the engine died? What sounds did it make? How do you know there is no compression? Does the piston move up and down when you pull the start cord? Are you getting spark?

Hole in piston.
Broken connecting rod.
Valve stem bent.
Burned valve.
Blown head gasket.
Broken or seized ring.
Just a bunch of guesses with that little info.

In addition to the others, look for broken or slipped cam chain.
