We don't support that body or drivetrain, so I'm moving your topic to the Lounge.

dont know if this helps, but the alternator may be seized up, i just had the same problem
have someone try to start it up and you look to see if the belt slips on the alternator

you might be looking at a nasty mess if it was truly owned by a drug addict. Be careful if you have to rummage around in the interior.

I'm no expert, but I would start with removing the drivebelt, see if it fires up, if not remove the plugs and try cranking. Cylinders could be full of coolant. Beyond that I wouldnt know.
