With both antifreeze and oil in the bilge it could be a few of things.
1) a badly blown head gasket
2) a cracked block (hope not!)
3) a cracked head
The next question would be: were you running the engine on no oil.
Do you have an oil pressure alarm? And does it work?

I had a similiar situation when the raw water pump belt broke and the engine overheated causing the head to warp.
