Looking at the pictures, I don't see any doors or emergency exits open. Therefore I think both planes were unattended. I know I shouldn't be an armchair accident investigator, but it looks like the Gulfstream rolled into the King Air.
I love what the news article says about the planes:
Quote: Officials said the planes were a Gulf Stream plane and a King Air plane. It was unknown what airline the planes were from.

Quoting tp1040 (Reply 3): the King Air was chocked and the Gulfstream has a tow bar attached. Not sure if this occurred prior to the incident.
According to the NBC affiliate news report the Gulf Stream was being towed and broke free of the tow bar. The King Air arrived about 9:00 AM this morning and was suppose to depart to MEM at 4:00 PM CST today. One aircraft was leased to Bank of America.
Man can be taken from Alaska. Alaska can never be taken from the man.
