Default died and will not start back 2005 GT Turbo

Need help!!! my 2005 GT 2.4 Turbo started as normal but as soon as i put it in reverse it died. Will not start back, have fire at all plugs, removed fuel line at fuel rail and cranked. Have gas. Turns over but very slowly even when jumped. Have read on here that Cam sensor is a common problem so I removed it today. While off had a friend crank car and end of cam does not turn? Looks like I am looking at a brass washer or something? fasten to end of cam? make me think Timing Belt?? any thtoughts to try, seems like a lot of trouble to check belt?

Between the sensor and the end of the cam, there's a magnet. Not sure if it's supposed to turn or not when cranking. Probably does, which means the timing belt has snapped.

What he said!
No worries on valve damage if indeed the cams are not turning.

Just wondering about the mileage on the car when the belt went. Thanks.
