(CNN)-- Police in the Chicago suburb of Burbank, Illinois, were investigating the death of a new bride whose blood-stained body was found in her bathtub. She was still in her wedding dress, news reports said.

Officers found Estrella Carrera's body Saturday after relatives called to say she failed to pick up her children on Saturday afternoon, police said in a statement issued Monday.

Carrera, 26, was wearing a formal dress, possibly her wedding dress, CNN affiliate WLS reported, citing unnamed sources. The mother of two children, ages 2 and 8, had been married on Friday, WLS reported, also citing unnamed sources.

She had been repeatedly stabbed, according to police.

"At this time it is important to know that this appears to be an isolated incident stemming from a domestic situation and the investigation is continuing," police said Monday.

Investigators have not said who is the suspect or what led to Carrera's death.

The police department did not immediately return a telephone call Tuesday seeking comment
