We derive a weighted $L^2$-estimate of the Witten spinor in
a complete Riemannian spin manifold~$(M^n, g)$ of non-negative scalar curvature
which is asymptotically Schwarzschild.
The interior geometry of~$M$ enters this estimate only
via the lowest eigenvalue of the square of the Dirac
operator on a conformal compactification of $M$.
