New Bride found dead in bathtub

A young bride still wearing her wedding dress was found stabbed to death in a bathtub at her suburban apartment just days after her wedding.   
Estrella I. Carrera, 26, was found in a wedding dress stabbed to death in a bathtub in a Burbank apartment, just days after her wedding.
She was found around 3:30pm on Sunday in the 7800 block of South Rutherford Avenue, in the Burbank area of Chicago, according to police.
Carrera's body was discovered after her sister became alarmed when she could not contact her and asked police to conduct a well-being check at the home, officials said.
When police called at her home, she was found with multiple stab wounds in an empty bathtub.

The 26-year-old was last seen around 2am on Saturday, hours after her wedding the evening before.
She was due to pick up her two children - aged eight and two years old - from a family member on Saturday afternoon but did not show up, according to the Chicago Tribune.
A spokeswoman for the Cook County Clerk's office said that Estrella did not yet have a marriage certificate on file.

She just moved to the area about two months ago and is believed to have married a 30-year-old Chicago man who has not yet been identified.
Her cousin Sandy Lopez said he was the father of her youngest child and it was a quick wedding. They had been in an on-off relationship for three years.
She said Estrella called her on Friday to invite her to a party but didn't mention that it was a wedding party.
