Bad things happen, sometimes even to different people who have lived in the same place. There's nothing remotely strange or "supernatural" about it.
Ronnie DeFeo probably would have still been a murdering SOB no matter where he lived.
Kids get messed up all the time, for various reasons.
By "all reports" do you mean the one where the Cromarty family themselves say David died after they moved out? Besides, even if he DID die while living there, drug related death for a man in his twenties is hardly unheard of, tragic but happens all the time.

The O'Neils no longer lived there on 9/11, and it's hardly strange someone from New York becoming a victim of that horrible day.
People read way to much into the supposed "effects" of that house. The last one is particular glaring and illogical... do people really believe some evil force in a suburban Long Island house sent someone who no longer lived there to their death in a terrorist attack?
Bizarre if they do.
There's a house on my street that has a pretty nasty history... one murder (husband killed wife), a suicide in the family of the next owners and very recently another owner was jailed for raping a 15 year old girl.
Left her for dead though luckily she survived.
Murder happening in a house would put me off living there possibly. Knowing how it happened even more so. Doubt I could sleep in that house without giving some thought to what happened in those rooms.
