According to Peru.com, a team of experts were to visit the accused killer this week as part of the criminal proceedings unfolding against the Dutchman.
RadarOnLine.com says Van der Sloot's Peruvian attorney said that the defense will submit their own psychological profiles on van der Sloot, dating back to his childhood.
As previously reported here on CBS42.com, van der Sloot's own mother has questioned his sanity.
Van der Sloot is accused of murdering 21 year old Stephany Flores....found dead in van der Sloot's Lima hotel room after spending time with him in a casino. Peruvian police have a ton of evidence including security camera video showing Flores going into the room but only van der Sloot coming back out.
