Metzen strongly hints in the lore panel Q & A at blizzcon that the dark wanderer - King Leoric or Leofric or whatever's son - is her father and Adria is her mother. It is also apparent in the beta story pages that Adria became close with the hero from D1 after he had taken on the burden of imprisoning Diablo within himself.
Therefore, if Leah is the Dark Wanderer's daughter it is entirely likely that she has some essence of Diablo deep within her in some form...Like how in Warcraft Medivh had Sargeras inside of him because his mother, Aegwynn, had been tainted by the demon's essence while he was still in the womb.
This would explain Azmodan's dialogue in the black soulstone cinematic as he is talking to the spirit of diablo within Leah, that she may or may not be aware of, but will likely come to understand at some point.
Metzen also basically says that Adria is dead, which is why Cain adopted her.

Question about Adria is asked and then answered at about 37:45 and the guy beside Metzen says she is dead and you find out how in D3.
The Question about Leah's father is asked at 41:45 and they don't reveal it but its kind of hinted. The hint the dude asking the question is talking about is a piece of Adria's journal you find in the beta which I saw when i watched Day 9's playthrough...the journal statement is as follows;
"Aidan came to me last night. I suspected what was lurking within his troubled heart. I consoled him as best I could. Regardless, wherever he's headed, Hell will surely follow in his wake."
As stated in the same above video at 27:04, Aidan is the Dark Wanderer from D2, Leoric's son, and the player hero from D1.

might be grasping at straws here but it seems possible, esp given the removed images of the leah-diablo, as seen in the last couple secs of this video
