Am not very sure if 3.00 – 6.00pm is the time most people die, we may need to have some evidence of this. However, one way to think about it is because that is when most people would be deep asleep – when most of our body systems and functions such as breathing etc is lowest (because e are not active), and I guess in that state, especially if one is already ill, they can easily slip into coma and die.

I thought there was a scientific reason.

During sleep, your immune system releases proteins called cytokines, some of which help promote sleep. Certain cytokines need to increase when you have an infection that arises from any body disorder, or when you’re under stress. At night most patients stays a wake and sleep deprivation may decrease production of these protective cytokines. In addition, infection-fighting antibodies and cells are reduced during periods when you don’t get enough sleep. at this level/stage a patient’s body becomes week to withstand these infections, this leads to high mortality rates during night hours
