The deputy who snapped dozens of close-up photos of human remains from the helicopter wreck that killed Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna testified Friday that he didn’t regret doing so — and said he was unaware the NBA legend was one of the victims.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Doug Johnson took the stand in the third day of Vanessa Bryant’s federal lawsuit against the county and said he took 25 pictures at the California crash site and texted them to two firefighters that he believed were high up in command.

Johnson said about a third of his pictures were close-up shots of body parts and told the court they were taken at the behest of Dept. Raul Versales, who was at the command post at the bottom of the Calabasas hill the chopper slammed into.

Lawyers for Bryant, who allege that workers took “pictures as souvenirs,” countered Johnson’s claim by playing a recording of Versales saying, “All of us at the command post, including myself, we did not request photographs.”

The deputy’s testimony also contradicted the sworn statement of Malibu Search & Rescue Team Reserve Deputy David Katz, who told the court Thursday that Johnson had told him he took 100 pictures.
