Internet companies too slow to remove photos of Bianca Devins' dead body?

Growing Instagram star Bianca Devins was recently murdered, allegedly by her boyfriend of several month Brandon Clark.

After the murder, Clark then seemingly posted photos of her dead body on his Instagram account. This prompted users to contact the police.

The images were removed, though according to Buzzfeed one photo remained behind a filter for hours after it was posted. The images later reappeared on both 4chan and Discord.

How much responsibility do companies have to police the content their users post and how quickly in cases like this should we expect them to take action, if at all?
