Society's best interest

Is there ever a point where an individual, when considering their track record of behaviour, would be right to conclude that their suicide is the most moral act they can undertake? For example, imagine that individual is a compulsive murderer. There is a possibility that treatment may cure this, but there is a significant risk that the individual would offend again. For that individual, the appropriate moral action is suicide.
