Is it a skeleton? among other parts! But no, it was not merely a skeleton.

Don't focus on the ish. Just consider it a whole dead body and I'll explain the ish later, if it doesn't become clear on it's own. It's not important to the puzzle really.

sorry not sure I phrased that question correctly and am not sure about your answer now, did Carl know the person in the carpet was dead? did he tell the other person that there was someone alive in the carpet? or dead? did that person call the police? look in the carpet? ask Carls parents?

Keep in mind that Carl is 2. I'm not sure that if he saw a body in the carpet he'd be able to understand whether the person is dead or just sleeping...

ok so Carls father killed his mother and wrapped her body in a carpet, which Carl was aware of. Someone later asked Carl where his mother was, so he told them that she was in the carpet. That person then asked his father what was going on?

do we still need more about what Carl says? what happened to the mother? what the father did whilst killing her? after killing her? after Carls comment? what the person does? do they call the police? does Carls father confess?

...Is this second person glad that the mother is dead? Is the age and gender of person #2 important? If not, shall we call him/her Sam? Does the father silence the person who asked Carl where his mother was? So the mother's death was not accidental, correct?

Can you give us a hint in white as to what else we need to figure out?

Let's try this scenario...

Carl's mother Betty wants to get a new carpet, so they peel it up after she calls for a garbage pick-up... Carl's father Joe sees this as a good opportunity to kill her, so that when the garbae collecter comes, he can just toss her in. Sam is the garbageman/woman coming to get the old carpet to take to the dump and comes to the house where Carl answers the knock on the door. Sam asks for Betty because she had placed the call to get rid of the old carpet, and Carl said where she was, just as the father came to the door. Sam asked Joe about this, who wasn't planning on anyone knowing about his wife being dead. Good job Carl, if I am indeed correct.

So am I at least close? Please? ;]

I'll use this opportunity to say that the carpeting is a rug...therefore no peeling it up is necessary. Carl's father Joe sees this as a good opportunity to kill her, so that when the garbae collecter comes, he can just toss her in.no Sam is the garbageman/woman coming to get the old carpet to take to the dump and comes to the house where Carl answers the knock on the door.no Sam asks for Betty yes because she had placed the call to get rid of the old carpet,no and Carl said where she was,yes just as the father came to the door.no Sam asked Joe about this, who wasn't planning on anyone knowing about his wife being dead.yes Good job Carl, if I am indeed correct.

I guess that as Sam doesn't speak to any of them he goes to the house of his own accord? does he go to their house specifically? or is he a door-to-door seller? is he giving out leaflets? asking for donations?

Haha, is it the IRS coming to take something away because they didn't pay their last bill? (I know that isn't right, because someone contacted Sam, but I couldn't resist... By the way, thank you, Damia!)

You say "could have been"... does that mean Betty could have placed the call? If Sam has never met them before, I assume that's why s/he asks for her, if the service s/he provides needs to be called upon... Drat, that means s/he isn't a mailman, or a garbageman, it seems.

...Here's another long shot... Carl was playing with the telephone... and he accidentaly dialed 911, then hung up. The house is registered under Betty's name, so Sam, the cop, came to the house and saw Carl playing in the yard, or right inside the door, so s/he asked Carl, "where's your mommy?" Carl told Sam, and that caused concern... and bad news for Joe, if I am indeed correct again...
...right? ;]

If Sam has never met them before, I assume that's why s/he asks for her, if the service s/he provides needs to be called upon...your assumption would be incorrect. Drat, that means s/he isn't a mailman, or a garbageman, it seems. nope. not a garbageman or mailman

Is Sam delivering something? picking up something? checking on something in the house? in the vicinity?

Did someone in Carl's household call Sam's company? Carl's neighbors? local police? is the visit random?

Is Sam a cop?YES Had she been reported missing?YES!!!

That will do for a SPOILER:

This is taken from a recent news story in the US, I can't remember what state.
A woman, who happened to be pregnant, was reported missing and the police ended going to her house to investigate. They found the woman's 2 year old son there, alone, where he had apparently been for days without supervision. When the police asked the boy where his mother was he responded with a quite chilling remark:

"Mommy's yelling, Mommy broke the table, Mommy's in the rug."

Needless to say this was more than a little concerning and turned the case into a murder investigation, and the child's father (ex-husband or ex-boyfriend or something to the woman) was, I believe, arrested and charged. So far there has not been a trial.
