WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (KUTV) – It was a case that gripped the nation.

Susan Powell, a wife and mother of two little boys, was last seen at her Utah home on Dec. 6, 2009.

Her husband, Josh, was the only person of interest listed in connection with her disappearance.

On Feb. 5, 2012, authorities say Josh killed their two children and himself.

Joanna Aeosana says she was not familiar with the case, and didn’t recognize the family’s home when she rented it.

However, she says since she and her family moved in, mysterious events have occurred inside the house.

“I hear people crying when I’m showering,” Aeosana told KUTV.

She says the garage door opens and closes on its own.

Recently, she said her 1-year-old son was talking to an empty swing in the front yard of the home saying, “Go away, leave me alone.”

A neighbor finally broke the news to her about the home’s history.

Now, she has moved out of the home and is asking the company who leased the property to find her another place to live or allow her to break the lease.

Real estate agents are not required to disclose the personal history of a home, but Aeosana says they should have a moral or ethical obligation to do so, especially when the Powell’s home is involved.

“I believe they should of, they should have told me,” said Aoesana. “I just don’t want to be in there.”

The Aoesana family says they have moved out of the home.
