Illinois bride found dead in bathtub wearing wedding dress

A newlywed still wearing her wedding dress was found dead in a bathtub at a home just outside Chicago, police said Monday.

Estrella Carrera, 26, suffered multiple stab wounds and was found in a dry tub Sunday afternoon at a home in Burbank, Ill., about 16 miles southwest of Chicago, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Carrera, who was married late Friday, was last seen alive around 2:00 a.m. local time Saturday, sources told the newspaper.

Her body was found after Carrera's sister became worried that she could not contact her and alerted the police.

Her death is being investigated by the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force. No further details of the circumstances surrounding the incident were given.

An autopsy was scheduled for later Monday to determine the cause of death, the report added.
