When I was a kid, my aunt bought me the Time-Life book series "Mysteries of the Unexplained." While this was the late 80's, so the event the OP is discussing had not happened, it did have a section on strange substances falling from the sky. It dealt with everything from Biblical plagues of frogs "raining" on Egypt, to Manna falling from heaven to feed the Israelites, to numerous reports of something called "angel hair" falling all over the globe. I seem to recall a couple of stories in there about things very similar to this... substances which were lab tested to reveal human and/or animal skin cells and I remember well that in some of the events the substance either left an almost chemical burn on anyone it touched, killed grass and plants where it landed, and made animals very ill.
I will have to look for that book now and return to this topic with some citations.

I love unsolved mysteries and I just started watching the "new" episodes on spike tv. Not as good as the old days but still pretty good. I do remember this episode, i'd love to find it now.

"There have been red rains that, in the middle ages, were called 'rains of blood'. Such rains terrified many persons..." Some red rains very strongly suggest blood or finely divided animal matter.

What's a bit confusing is the people getting ill from white blood cells?
I don't see how that could be the cause to the illness.
